Cherry Blossom's

A few Iconic shots from this years Annual Cherry Blossom Festival. You can read more about them on the National Park Sevice webpage & at the National Cherry Blossom Festival webpage. After being inspired by Deb's spring photo, my goal was to get a close up of a cherry blossom. So here are my Iconic shots of the National Cherry Blossom Festival they include a couple of National Monuments - Jefferson at the top followed by the "Wow, look how full those branches are." shot. With my close-up of a blossom shot finishing the series. (I love of the Washington Monument is out of focus...)

You got some beautiful shots, Amy! My favorites are the close-up of the blossoms with the Washington Monument in the background and the one with the pagoda. But I like them all!

Our kitchen calendar shot for the month is the Washington Memorial and the cherry blossoms. Professionally taken, of course. Yours turned out every bit as lovely.

Wow! Wonderful photos! It's hard to believe spring is so advanced some places. It's barely 50 here today, but at least the sun is shining! Enjoy--I hope you're outside some of the time.
