Cherry Blossoms!

Thanks to an unseasonably warm winter on the East Coast, the Cherry Blossoms bloomed early.  Last week, these DC treasures were in peak bloom and I took a run down to the tidal basin to check 'em out.  Yet another thing crossed off my 'never-done-in-dc' list.  It turns out, what I thought were Cherry Blossoms all over DC for the last three Springs, are actually Japanese Magnolias - And I'd never been to the National Mall during bloom-time to see the actual CBs!  Oops!  Now I know...

It was well worth the run, as while they're blooming, the whole basin is bordered in pink.  And who doesn't love pink?  Iphone grade pictures below!
