We feel so blessed that we were in Washington, DC when the cherry trees were in full bloom. Peak time for these trees to show their colors can be anytime from late March to early April. We arrived just in time! The day after our tour of the monuments and memorials, it poured rain and got really windy. I don't know if there were going to be any blossoms left for the Cherry Blossom Parade scheduled for today. We were very fortunate indeed!
