Cheers for the Cherry Blossoms

Surrounded by a cloud of pink, we savored the expanse of cherry blossoms, in full bloom in Washington, DC. 

And, marveled at the impressive architecture that makes up our capitol.

I know our founding fathers would have been proud at how beautiful the city looks today. Don’t you agree?

Off to See the Cherry Blossoms

Today, we’re wrapping up our sons’ Spring Break in our nation’s capitol. And, I feel like clicking my heels because the cherry blossoms bloomed early this year. Normally, they don’t peak until April. 

100 years ago, Japan gave 3000 cherry blossom trees to the United States. Who would have thought that they would have flourished so beautifully?

Camera in hand, I will hopefully get to capture some photos that resemble these!

Have a wonderful Spring weekend, surrounded by all that is blooming near you!
