Cherry Blossoms Peak .... story
Sunday is supposed to be a beautiful, sunny 70 degree day in Washington, D.C. and the cherry blossoms are expected to be at peak bloom. And... we're going to be there to see it .... might even take pictures for you.
The Jefferson Memorial in this picture holds a special memory for me, and is a perfect backdrop for the renowned blossoms from the more than 3000 Japanese Cherry Trees that line the tidal basin. By Sunday, or early next week, more than 70% of the buds are expected to be blooming.
This link tells the whole story of the original trees that had to be destroyed, and the replacement trees sent by the Japanese.
