• Blossom Time

    You know its spring when the biggest attraction in Washington, DC is the cherry blossom trees around the Tidal Basin.  I get excited too!  I enjoy waking up at 4:30 am and making my annual pilgrimage to the mecca of blossoms, but sometimes I don’t always make it there on time.  Immediately after I parked my vehicle near the Jefferson Memorial, I realized even in the dark that I might be disappointed. The problem I have is that I have been spoiled.  I’ve been there where every tree was filled with pink and white blooms leaving no available space on the limbs—gorgeous.  This year, I was a little disappointed.  I saw many blossoms on the ground than on the trees.  I missed peak bloom AGAIN this year with the help of a steady downpour of rain the day before.  After the sunrise, I took a few shots and started making my way back to the vehicle.  I managed to find some blooms on a few limbs here and there.  The good news is I’ll be back in 365 days.
