DC’s National Cherry Blossom Festival is beloved by both locals and tourists alike, and each year, I look forward to braving the crowds to take in the beauty of these gorgeous tress. Given to the United States by Japan back in 1912, the cherry blossoms are celebrating their centennial this year, and Stephen and I had a fun time heading into town earlier this week to capture a few late-afternoon shots.
While down at the Tidal Basin, we also enjoyed visiting the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial and catching a glimpse of colorful tulips blooming just about everywhere.
