The Cherry Blossom Festival was going full-blast in Washington DC this weekend, and this year Mother Nature cooperated amazingly well. Most years, we get massive amounts of rain dumped on us all week, or a huge wind storm appears early in April and blows all the blossoms away. But not this year. The weather was gorgeous all weekend.
We didn't attend any of the festivities this year, but one day last week the hubby took some time out of his busy work day to walk over to the Tidal Basin and check out the blooms. These are a couple of the shots he took with his cell phone camera - it takes really great photos, don't you think? Well, I suppose the photographer had something to do with that, too. (Click on photos to enlarge.)
Here's a shot of the cherry blossoms with the Jefferson Memorial in the background. Beautiful blue sky and water.
And this one gives you a bit of an idea of the kinds of crowds he met.
