cherry blossom festival 2011

despite the chilly temperatures and gusty winds, the cherry blossoms at the tidal basin are hanging in there: peak bloom time is right now through sunday! if you havent seen this annual spectacle, you are missing out! driving there and parking is difficult at best; metro + walking is what i would recommend...there are tons of activities and events both saturday and sunday all around town, so go and enjoy the pretty pink blossoms!

  1. We went last year and the weather was perfect. This year, not so, we've stayed home. The blossoms are beautiful this time of year, regardless of the temps. I did a blog post on my visit last year so feel I won't be missing out if we don't get up there again right away. I thought it was spring, after such nice weather there for a while. But with this cold spell we've had, I'm not sure what season it is;-)
