Cherry Blossoms! I didn't make it down to the tidal basin this year, or at least I haven't yet I suppose. There's still some time. I'm not really a huge fan of DC and all it's annoyances. Plus these trees are not exclusive to the tidal basin. As aforementioned, they lined the street I grew up on and there are a lot of random ones in my current neighborhood. One house has a HUGE one in their front yard. In full bloom it is gorgeous and considering how delicate these things are, I don't know how it looks so unweathered. It is beautiful. The one above is from my current street and looking as peppy as ever.
