Spring Comes to Washington
The cherry trees don't only line the Tidal Basin, they also extend into East Potomac Park. There, you will find the lone weeping cherry tree, a lovely sight with its graceful cascading branches of flowers in bloom.
DC is beautiful city to begin with but when the cherry tress are in bloom, it's gorgeous! The trees aren't quite in full bloom yet but if weather holds as currently forecasted, they will be by the time of the Cherry Blossom Parade which takes place this weekend.
Though the cherry trees are the stars of the spring show, the colorful magenta magnolias and bright yellow forsythias are the best supporting cast a cherry tree could ever hope for.
