It's snowing in Illinois today, but it's cherry blossom time in Washington, D.C. These are pictures of last year's blossoms. I lived by the Japanese Embassy, so our entire street was lined with cherry trees. It was a beautiful walk to campus!
Of course, we had to go see the blossoms on the Mall and at the Tidal Basin. We probably could have gotten in trouble for climbing the trees, but we had a blast (even if there were millions of tourists everywhere). It's days like today that make me miss DC!
