Photos on Friday: Peak Cherry Blossoms at the Tidal Basin (Reblog)

Used to work in our nation's capital, Washington, D.C. And one of my best memories were when the cherry blossoms bloomed. One of my Facebook pals invited me to contribute to one of her group boards on Pinterest and when I visited her profile to see what else she was pinning, found the link to her main blog which highlights “Things to See and Do in the Washington, D.C.Metro Area”. Yep. It's springtime in D.C., so you can guess what some of her blog posts were about. Cherry Blossoms! YAY! My pal is also a very good photographer.  Combining tidbits from her blog with info from my various blogs.  Hope you enjoy this post!


  • History of the National Cherry Blossom Festival: The event is one that offers a tribute to the commemoration of 3,000 cherry trees gifted to the US from Japan's Mayor Yukio Ozaki in 1912. This exquisite gift offered just after the turn of the 20th century was given as a way to honor the ongoing friendship between the US and Japan.
