The Obligatory Cherry Blossom Post

I got up bright and early and headed down to the Tidal Basin to try and catch the last of the Cherry Blossoms before they blew away and before the tourists descended en masse.

I arrived on Ohio Drive, alongside the Potomac, at 7:32 am and got one of the last available parking spots.

Apparently I wasn't the only one who thought that an early arrival was important.

While there were definitely still some pretty amazing looking trees out there, the peak bloom was mid-week and then storms on Thursday night/Friday morning left more of the blossoms *in* the Tidal Basin, than around it. But, it was still a beautiful morning for a walk around the water and I still took the obligatory bazillion pictures of virtually the same tree.

And now I'm going to share them with you. Ok, not all of them, just a fraction of my favorites.

Happy Spring!
