In early April, more than 1.5 million tourists make their way to see the picturesque cherry blossoms in D.C. and take photos. The main goal is to witness what’s known as the peak bloom of about 3,000 cherry trees. It’s a spectacular sight and the National Cherry Blossom Festival celebrates the gift of friendship to the United States from the people of Japan. The Sakura truly transforms the area into a romantic, whimsical place. While my sister and I missed the peak bloom by a day or two, there are still stunning blooms all over our Nation’s Capitol. The time these exquisite flowers bloom changes every year, so there isn’t a set time. There are estimates but the weather is unpredictable and changes every minute.
