We drove to Washington, DC recently to visit friends of ours - Lynn & Bill and their daughter Avery - from Phoenix who now live in Ashburn, Virginia and to go see the blooming cherry trees. We had a lovely visit with them but unfortunately the weather did not cooperate. It rained all day and we didn't get many good photos. Here is a little taste of what our Nation's Capital looks like when the cherry trees are blooming. The National Cherry Blossom Festival is over now but dates for next year's event are March 28 - April 12, 2009. We'll try to pick a sunnier day next year!
