Washington in Bloom

by Ray King April. 07, 2010 7307 views

These are a few photos of my Easter weekend trip to DC. It was a beautiful weekend in a beautiful city.

Thomas Jefferson Memorial

Washington Monument and Jefferson Memorial

Jefferson Memorial

Cherry trees surround the Tidal Basin. A splendid gift from the people of Japan.

It was the peak blooming time for the Cherry trees.

85 degrees made for a perfect day for paddle boating.

The base of the Washington Monument at night. I shot this on the way to watch the fireworks.

Oh, Ray, I'm typing this through tears - the last shot is wonderful and reminds me of listening to the Army Band play right by the Washington Monument one night. Life is never the same after you turn to the monument's flag and sing the National Anthem! (Saved it to my faves!) Love the plane in #3 -
I really like #5 & 6, as well. I've been there many times, but never during the spring (my husband marched in the Cherry Blossom Parade, tho!!). Thanks for a great post today!
