Cherry Blossom season in DC is when I really start thinking
about spring. Even though Mr. Weather is still a bit uncertain of what exactly it is supposed to do, nonetheless, seeing the blossoms ensure me that the beautiful season is upon us leaving behind the frigid air and dark gray skies that so heavily burden the cities beautiful visual. I take the cherry blossoms as the official statement that spring is really here to stay.
Today I finally decided to take a drive alongside the Tidal Basin, and it was a sight to behold. Of course I probably should have done that a couple of days ago, but I think it was still a bit too cold, wet and gray for me. There where people everywhere. Some walking around, taking photos, watching the peddle boats out in the lake, and some just sitting under the Cherry Trees enjoying the sight. I wonder how allergy sufferers felt today. The wind was blowing the petals off the tree brunches and with it the pollen also. The whole area was quite dusty.
There are some beautiful views of the monuments from the Tidal Basin. The Lincoln Memorial and the Veterans Memorial were just majestic. Many of the guests staying at our Washington DC Inn took off to see the blossoms right after breakfast this morning. The National Cherry blossoms season is one of DC’s most celebrated events.
