Cherry Blossoms on the First Day of Spring

Ah, the first day of spring, and it was a beautiful one in the nation's capital.

Couldn't miss the opportunity to get down to DC's Tidal Basin and take some pictures with the new camera.
It's the 100-year anniversary of when Japan gave the U.S. the cherry blossom trees as a gift.
I really like these next two, with their alternating focal distances. Yay for the D-SLR!
I feel like this should be a Kennedy Center advertisement
With so many blossoms having fallen, we were able to gather up handfuls for Emily to do this:
Animated - Cherry Blossoms 2012 B
Doesn't that look like fun?!

That weekend it rained a bunch, so I don't know how many blossoms remained afterwards.

Hopefully you were able to see them in person, or maybe next year!
