Though we go to see Washington, D.C.’s cherry blossoms every March, this year is especially notable: it’s the 100th anniversary of Japan’s gift of the trees. Tourists packed the bloom-laden sidewalks as we wrapped around the Tidal Basin, dodging a few stray raindrops and enjoying the newly-unveiled Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial.
It’s really lovely there — magical. Since we had such a mild winter and early spring in D.C., I’m relieved we made it down to see them! Was thinking it was a little touch-and-go, schedule-wise. If you’ve never been or dream of seeing the city, make sure you go in March. Before it’s 100 degrees. Before the humidity clogs your throat, your nose. While it’s still lovely and fresh. That’s the Washington I like best.

A simple request: If you have a moment, my mom — a very talented photographer herself — has a photo currently up for the People’s Choice Award in a FotoDC cherry blossom contest! Would you consider voting for her? It just takes a second, and you won’t get spammed. I would really appreciate it. Thank you!
