Welcoming spring- Cherry blossoms at Washington



This weekend was absolutely perfect. The weather was just right and we were in Washington DC, enjoying the cherry blossoms. It was such an awesome sight and looked picture peCherry blossomsrfect. Pink is girls favorite color and to be sorrounded by all this pink….well, to put it mildly I was overwhelmed! We stayed with friends and had great food and lovely conversations. Thanks Deedees for having us over! Now that I am back in CT, the weather is rainy but that makes me appreciate the great weekend I had even more…

Here are some pictures from the trip. They dont do justice to the beauty of these blossoms.

The skies were blue and gave a nice contrast to the pink of the blossoms

The blossoms are of different colors, which makes it more interesting. So if you get a chance, visit this place and have a great time.

If you travel to the city, take the train. Try not to drive as the parking is very limited. You can spend hours stuck in traffic and getting all aggravated ( I learnt this the hard way and hence the tip). So pack some light food as there is no food in sight and when there is, there are long lines.

    First let me congratulate you on your fabulous selection of this new theme. The color is rich and gorgeous, I love love your current theme. WordPress really offers fabulous themes to suit any palatte, doesn’t it? Very appealing, rich and pleasant to the eyes. I’d have gone with this theme, if I’ve started my blog right now. That Good!:)

    Cherry blossoms changes otherwise very dull, museum kind of atmosphere in DC. The beauty takes your breath away, I agree. we’ve been to DC during CB season several times, everytime we felt like we were in some dreamland, a very crowded one, ofcourse.:)

    Beautiful pictures. Good tips about sightseeing DC, finding parking is impossible and food is scarce.

  6. Thanks Indira..The theme is so Indian, isn’t it? I knew that it was the right one as soon as I saw it. Sometimes you just know,right?

    Ed..Thank you. The view was even better.
