Considering how obsessed I am with all things pink, y’all know I wasn’t going to miss the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C., two weekends ago! It’s Where In The World Wednesday and I just can’t seem to stay out of the District.
More than one million tourists visit the Tidal Basin annually to see our cherry blossoms, a gift from Japan in 1912. Last year was my first visit to see them and I was enthralled; this year was even better, considering Mom and I had time to wander for hours and take a billion pictures! (Or, okay, about 250. But it felt like a billion, especially when I went to edit them all in Photoshop.) These were all taken on April 2, right around their peak bloom date.
A few of my favorites from this year’s festivities are included below, and the full set is up on my Flickr.
