Cherry Blossom Festival: Washington, D.C.
- jmsaba, CNN iReport producer
I was fortunate enough to arrive in Washington, D.C. last Friday on a gorgeous, 80-degree day before the rainy weekend hit to witness the exploding cherry blossoms around the Tidal Basin. It was the first time in about 5 years that I've taken a photo of a flower, and was also my first time seeing the cherry blossoms in D.C. I really wasn't expecting it to be quite as stunning as it was.
