The Japanese cherry blossoms in DC were at peak this week, so I decided to get downtown early in the morning, to take a peek at them before I went into the office. I got there a little after 6 am with the hope that I would get there before the rest of the cherry blossom tourists. How naïve can a History Tourist be? The Tidal Basin, around which the most famous of the cherry blossom trees grow, wasn’t as unbearably crowded as I’ve experienced in the past. But there were more people than I expected that early on a weekday morning.
Anyway, I took my pictures and came away with the idea that I’d write a short blog post about it. That was until I saw Transplanted Tatar’s blog post about the cherry blossoms and got serious blog envy. Great post, exquisite pictures.
So I’m going to cheat and send you over there for your cherry blossom fix. Enjoy.
