Cherry Blossoms 2013 – Washington DC

This year we waited and waited and waited for the cherry blossoms.  Then when they finally bloomed the second week of April it was 90 degrees!  This made for only a couple of days of blossoms (they started opening on Monday and were gone by Thursday night) but I made the most of it!  The blossoms were also really pink again this year, it must be the warm weather that gives them a little more color than usual.

So, on a dreary, cool day in Washington, DC, enjoy remembering warmer weather and the first signs of spring!
