Week 36: Cherry blossoms

Apr 21, 2015

Cherry blossoms in Washington DC have been on my list for ever. Recently I traveled to Washington on several different occasions, but there was not a single blossom on any of the 2,000 cherry trees, not even at the end of March. So harsh and long was the winter this year. Luckily, the spring sprang eventually so when Jane took us on a trip to DC in the second week of April,  all the cherry trees were in full bloom all across the city and especially around the Tidal Basin, where the air was filled with the intoxicating scent of the beautiful flowering trees.









The credit for the amazing photos below goes to Jane:






Later that day, we visited the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum in Dulles, where we learned how to fly a Cessna and had fun pretending to be astronauts.
