It’s cherry blossom season here in DC! Cherry trees, dogwood, tulip trees (I don’t know exactly what they are, but the blossoms look like tulips) have been blossoming all over town for the past few weeks. Last Saturday Mark and I walked down the National Mall to the Tidal Basin to enjoy some beautiful scenery. It was not as enjoyable as we had hoped, because it turned out to be a crazy windy day, and by the time we left at around 9:30am it had gotten so crowded that taking pictures was getting difficult. But we had a good time and got some great shots of the trees. Enjoy!
This is Stanton Park next to our apartment.
It was a beautiful clear day. That’s the Washington Monument sticking out behind Smithsonian Castle.
We also found this World War Memorial. It doesn’t say World War “one”, because it was built before the second World War.
