The Cherry Blossoms are a big deal in DC. They are especially attractive to photographers. Even so, I've not seen them since 1997, at which time I was more interested in my new girlfriend than some bloomy things on trees.
Skip ahead about 18 years. Said girlfriend is now my wife, I am still very interested in her, and I've still not seen The Cherry Blossoms. I did however see some cherry blossoms in DC, just not The Cherry Blossoms. These are those.
