While it’s June and we’re nearing the official start of summer, the sad truth is that spring ended long ago and the infamous summer humidity of Washington, D.C. is back in full force. These days, we see longer winters and summers but only the quickest glimpse of an idyllic spring in the city.
To reminisce on the barely week that was spring, I’m telling my spring story in pictures.
This is one of my favorite times in D.C. – long and glorious spring days. I love the longer days, the warmth, the breeze, the flowers, and the happier dispositions of D.C. habitants and visitors alike. New life is breathed into the city. People are out and about, animals pop out more, tulips and cherry trees open up.
Cherry blossom season is always a crazy, wonderful time in D.C. The cherry trees bloom all over the District but most noticeably and famously at the Tidal Basin, where 1.5 million people flock to every year. There was no exception this year, despite the cold front that nearly ruined all potential blooms. However, flowers are some of the most resilient things in nature and we were fortunate enough to witness plenty of these irrepressible blossoms spring to life.
