my d.c.: the start of cherry season
posted by soe 11:57 pm

After a four month hiatus, I offer a return to our regular Friday feature, My D.C.

Every Friday, you’ll find me offering up a glimpse of life around the District. I hope you enjoy these around-town shots.

This week, we have shots from the cherry trees, taken last weekend down on the Mall, near the Washington Monument.

As you can see, the cherries were not quite at peak on Saturday:

Cherry Blossoms '09

But they were still glorious:

I’ll be heading back down to the Tidal Basin tomorrow in hopes of catching them in their breathtaking fullness. Hopefully today’s rain and tomorrow’s predicted gale force winds won’t rip the blossoms off the trees before we get to enjoy them!
