Cherry blossoms

Delicate blossom More cherry blossoms Cherry blossoms Blossoms with bokehblossoms Backyard blossoms Blossoms and festering pond Bright pink blossoms More white blossoms

It’s springtime in DC, which means cherry blossoms and tourists. After the inauguration, the cherry blossom crowds seem pretty tame – no need for the national guard to do crowd control at least. However, trying to take photos around the tidal basin you’re either standing in someone’s way or further trampling the already dead grass. So, I like to head over to East Potomac Park, towards Hains Point, instead. Also, the blossoms around the tidal basin and Hains Point are all the same delicate pinkish-white, so if you like some variety in your blossoms, you’ve gotta go elsewhere. I found the bright pink blossoms at Brookside Gardens in Wheaton.

Update: Added a couple more from Brookside Gardens. This Flickr set contains a few more photos.
