When I first returned home, the first comment I heard was: “Welcome back. You’re just in time for the Cherry Blossoms!”
Washington, DC loves its Cherry Blossoms season. It’s the sign of Spring and one of the most beautiful times to visit this city.
How often do I do touristy things in my city? Almost never (ha). I’m so busy traveling elsewhere that I haven’t enjoyed much of where I live for half of the year. I decided to change that and for the first time in almost ten years, I headed to the National Mall with a friend to gawk at the Cherry Blossoms. But we were late – most of the trees have already shed their bloom. Spring came early this year, and the rain didn’t help.
Still, I managed to get some shots of the few blooming trees left and they were stunning all the same.
