Cherry blossoms in DC

Last year, I didn’t get a chance to see the cherry blossoms in peak bloom because they happened to bloom, like, mid-week, and I couldn’t make it into the city to see them. This year they happened to be peak bloom for a few days including on the weekend so we braved the crowds to take some pictures. Sadly, the event was somewhat marred by the massive trash piles everywhere, but the weather was pretty nice and we went during dinner time so the crowds were somewhat less. I was also lazy so I just took my iPhone but I think the pictures turned out pretty well with just iPhone and Instagram πŸ™‚

 

 

 

 

 

 

The blossoms are all off the trees now because we had a bad bout of rain (and snow!!! In mid-April!!! WTF, weather) and wind go through mid-week. I would recommend trying to see them at some point in your life, though, because they are really impressive even despite the crowds. πŸ™‚
