April in Paris Washington

April in Paris may be a feeling that no one can ever reprise but if you were in Washington this past weekend you probably met the charm of spring directly in the face too. Paris may have “chestnuts in blossoms” but we’ve got stunning cherry trees given as a sign of friendship by Tokyo Mayor Yukio Ozaki back in 1912. I don’t know if I was starved for spring after a long winter that kept dragging on… or if I was lured to the Tidal Basin by an unlikely combination of peak bloom time coinciding with a weekend which also happened to be an absolutely stunning spring day, but I definitely caught cherry blossoms fever over these last 2 days! Here are a few pictures I snapped during sakura on Saturday and Sunday:

Ah, DC, city in bloom… what have you done to my heart this weekend?
