It was a picture perfect day on March 31, 2018 in Washington D.C., perfect to grab some photos of the blossoming cherry trees!
After seeing these beautiful trees, the story of George Washington chopping down a cherry tree becomes even more poignant.
The Cherry Blossom Festival also includes an amazing kite festival, where kites of all kinds are flown along the National Mall. You can bring a kite or buy one on-site! It looked really fun.
There were several blooming trees to be seen near the White House:
Like any good festival, there were also many occasion-specific souvenirs available, featuring cherry blossoms on almost any kind of product you could imagine! I'm not always a sucker for souvenirs, but I was so in love with the cherry blossoms that I felt drawn in by these little items.
The National Mall itself looked stunning in the rare clear blue skies and the bright sun.
