What’s on you mind?
The last few posts, I have posted teaser content and photos of Cherry Blossoms from previous year. To prove my previous post, and reiterate that while winter seems to be making a fuss about leaving (we had flurries almost all day today), here are the first official pictures of some pink from this year 🙂
This time of the year, if you live in the DC area, Cherry Blossoms are what’s on most people’s mind. End of March and early April is when throngs return to the Capital city, to catch a glimpse of the Blossoms along the Tidal Basin, around the city and neighborhood. In a way, the Cherry Blossoms are a harbinger of spring: once they are here and gone, winter is officially over.
Believe it or not, while it is quite pleasant to be able to walk around the city without being trampled upon, I do miss the hustle and bustle that returns with the Cherry Blossoms. It is exciting to see new faces and the awakening of the city for the new tourist season which continues till Labor Day.
The trees around the Tidal Basin are still slow to bud, but come this time next week, I am sure there will be more life in them. Today’s storm, is hopefully the last of the year, and temperatures are expected to return to normal after tomorrow.
