blossoms!

It's that time of year again! Even during a cold spring, the cherry blossoms are out earlier than usual.


How I love these trees!



The blossoms aren't supposed to peak until later this week, but Brad and I paid them a brief visit on Saturday. Sunday's forecast (and eventual delivery) of snow made me nervous and I wanted to see the blossoms before the snow hit them.

Some trees were full and bushy, like this one.


The clusters of blooms on other trees were scant.


Cold, wind, threat of snow, endless tourists, no parking . . . nothing can keep me away from these gorgeous trees--proud to be witnessing my 11th cherry blossom season as a DC resident!
