Cherry Blossom Season

I really like being able to experience seasons. Back in California we got a dry season and a rainy season. Pretty much all we ever get. But living in DC I’ve been able to watch the leaves turn bright yellow and red, the first snowflake fall, and the tiny buds bloom into beautiful blossoms. I think of all the seasons, my favorites are Fall, Winter, and Spring – in that order. DC Summer – definitely not my favorite. Especially because of the humidity, mosquitos and cicadas. Bloodsucking mosquitos and terrifyingly huge cicadas… Yuck.

Moving on from mosquitos and cicadas. Let’s look at all the pretty flowers instead!!! Here are some of the (many) photos I took of this year’s Cherry Blossom blooms (with some tulips as well). If you haven’t visited DC during Cherry Blossom season, definitely try. Even though it the city gets packed with tourists and you’re constantly bumping into people (and their double-wide strollers), Cherry Blossoms are probably one of my favorite things about living here. Along with the other million things I can list out in another post. =) What can I say, I simply love DC.

‘Til the next time.
