cherry blossoms
posted by soe 1:50 am

From Rudi’s and my bike ride down to see the cherry blossoms by the Tidal Basin and Potomac River a couple weekends ago. They were past peak, which means that there are more leaves than blossoms, so it wasn’t that ethereal pink cloud look you get during the best period. And as we were down along the river, the drizzle kicked in and the cold crept down, so we’re enjoying ourselves less and less as the ride went on, but were determined to get the most out of it that we could, since we were already going to be wet and chilled regardless.
