The Blossoms are Back!

National Cherry Blossom Festival

Young Cherry Trees on the Tidal Basin

It’s cherry blossom time again in the Nation’s Capitol! There’s something about those pretty little white flowers that brings everyone and their neighbor (and brother, and sister, and mother, and father and friend…you get the picture) out to DC. This morning was no exception. I haven’t seen that many people on the National Mall since the Inauguration of Obama. It was fun. Everyone had a camera which made for good “photographer” watching. You know, the “photographer crouch” and all. Fun. Anyway, these are a few of my favorites from the day….

And for those of you who have never seen the cherry blossoms, here are a few in color. Enjoy!
