Not usually a huge fan of pink...

...but I'll make an exception for the cherry blossoms. My pictures really don't do justice to the blooms - walking around the Tidal Basin (with hordes and hordes of tourists, of course, which pulls some of the Zen out of the experience...but also adds an air of festivity...), surrounded by the shades of pink and white in every direction...just beautiful. Next weekend is actually projected to be "peak bloom" time, but given yesterday's nasty, rainy, blah weather, I thought I should take advantage of today's sunshine and mild temperatures and go enjoy nature. Oh, weather powers that be, please let it stay spring!

Only there a few weeks and already antagonistic towards the tourists. Erin, you have arrived.

You should see me shove them off the sidewalk into oncoming traffic as I fight my way home down H. Brutal, just brutal.
