Washington, DC Cherry Blossoms 2011March 27, 2011 at 6:01 pm | Posted in DC, gardening, life, spring, Washington | Leave a comment
Every year I make an effort to go to the Tidal Basin to see the cherry trees in bloom. The parking can be tough, but once you’re there, it’s such a pleasant way to spend the afternoon holding hands, people watching and lusting after super cute dogs. (I saw more than a few.) The mood is tender and sweet; and everyone smiles as they meander about because at this very moment, there are few places more beautiful. Washington, DC may not be the hippest place to be, but springs here are hands down the best with a bounty of staggered blossoms that emerge week by week through the summer. The air is still chilly, but the sky is true blue which promises warmth that is just around the corner.
