Cherry Blossom Time In Washington DC

Spring is here, right? Not according to the recent dip into the 30's this week. Can we get a bloom, please? Sure, it's cherry blossom time. When in Washington, head to the Tidal Basin to see the show.


People and monuments, soaking up the environment.
The blooms don't last long, time to preserve the moment. If only people would get out of the background! Creative cropping?


After the tough winter, a welcome change. Some things, best left un-posed.

Another angle, another monument.

Dancing And Celebrating At Timket

Once the big Timket ceremony is over, it's time for some spontaneous celebration. For women, spectators at the big event, now you can do a little participating.

Time to dance!


It's a joyous time, with plenty of family and spectators watching and joining in. Beautiful textiles.

The future generation is concentrating.


But some kids have had enough, even if they've made the effort to wear their Timket best.

Maybe you still have a little energy. It doesn't mean you're going to see anything.
