Welcome spring - Cherry blossoms Festival, D.C.

If you love in Washington D.C., one of the most awaited moment in the spring season is the "National Cherry Blossom Festival".  Cindy from Enclosure, posted few a beautiful vintage photo and information about the official dates for this year's festival, with a peak happening at the beginning of April.

Today, I would like to celebrate the beginning of the spring for those on the Northern hemisphere, with posting images I took some years ago during the festival while living in D.C.   I used to walk everyday the area surrounding the Tidal Basin to admired the Yoshino cherry trees, offering one of the most beautiful spectacles.  I, like many, was fascinated with the effect of the "pink rain", when seated under one of the trees.

These images are from year 2000, I think I could call them vintage or a piece of history, since they are analog!!  Makes me think how much technology has changed since that year!

You know, all the time I lived in Pennsylvania and was not that far from DC, I never saw the blooming cherry trees. These are pretty images, and show me what I keep missing. Someday...

Lovely, I have always wanted to see this. However, I have one very large Yoshino cherry of my own so I enjoy the pink rain too.

As always, your shots are spectacular. But i haven't seen any cherry blossoms yet in person, only in photos. At least a friend studying in Japan posts a lot of them for us to see.
There is something about cherry blossoms that is so enticing! The cherry trees in my garden bloom in February and the bees would even try to get nectar from the blooms that littered the ground. It was amazing to watch.
