Photos of the Week

Each year, Washington D.C. celebrates the Cherry Blossom Festival.  The peak shifts among the days in the month of April as the Winter weather affects the blooming season.  Their beauty is ephemeral and mystical.  However, there is nothing so beautiful as a cherry blossom in full bloom among the sunshine and blue skies.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope that you enjoy your visit and view.  I proudly took these photos and am quite pleased with them for an amateur.



  1. This is one of the best times DC show its natural beauty. I made my yearly pilgrimage to view the Blossoms and marveled at the beauty and symmetry of the placement of the trees around some of the most famous National Monuments.

    PS: if you ever get the opportunity, traverse the area by bicycle, it cheaper and easier.

    • My Dear Monad, you have travelled so much and seen sights that I will never have the opportunity to enjoy. Thank you for sharing! Also, as far as the bike, you are obviously in much better shape than I ! 🙂

  2. I always love this time of year.. and especially love the blossoms on trees… Enjoy a lovely Spring weekend x Sue

  3. So magnificent! Beautiful photos and thanks for the lovely wishes.
