It is now peak Cherry Blossom week in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.

However, the weather in the mid-Atlantic region of the USA has not been very cooperative this early spring season; most days have been cold, windy and/or rainy. It’s been so drab around here that I have not even felt like trudging my camera equipment to the Tidal Basin even though there are supposedly less tourists than last year.

Instead, I will just reminisce on the glorious weather from last April and some of my favorite pictures taken then.

This weekend the weather should give us a break and there are plenty of National Cherry Blossom Festival events and performances scheduled through Sunday, April 10, 2011.  Enjoy!
