The Jefferson Memorial from across the tidal basin.
A beautiful close-up of the dainty petals of the cherry blossoms.
Love this with the plane flying into National Airport.
Some of the blossoms are white and some are pink.
Jefferson Memorial from across the tidal basin, Washington, D.C.
Ha..me loving every minute of the day!
I like putting something in the foreground to make the picture more interesting.
Another view of the Jefferson Memorial.
This one will be perfect on canvas!
I loved watching this lady paint under the cherry trees.
She had such a steady hand and her painting was very pretty.
Another view from behind.
I love this picture.
The Washington Monument from across the tidal basin. It was hard to take pictures of it since they are working on it from the extensive damage from the earthquake.
Hiding the scaffolding with cherry trees.
Another view of the Washington Monument.
Cherry blossoms and the Washington Monument.
A view of the beautiful trees and people out enjoying them.
I love the two shades of colors in the foreground and background.
Can you say pink petals?
When the petals fall to the ground it is a beautiful site....it looks like snow falling.
Tulip tree blossoms!
Sometimes it is fun to capture other people capturing the scene!
Another artist doing her thing! Once we were at Humpback Bridge and our son, Nick was painting it and a man walked up to him and paid him for the painting! :)
I love this picture of her brushes and painting. I wish I had given both artist my card so they could see these!
Another view of the artist creating art!
The Japanese lantern and Washington Monument.
It truly is a treat to see these beautiful trees at the peak stage.

Martin Luther King Monument with a few cherry blossoms!
These were in a flower garden near the tidal basin. I love color!
They were so beautiful...a whole garden full of these!
We went into the U.S. Botanical Gardens and this is what we found...colorful hydrangeas everywhere.
Hydrangeas and ferns.
Isn't the blue hydrangea just beautiful?
Rose colored hydrangeas are beautiful too!
The orchids were still blooming! Amazing how everyone is so different!
These orchids were beautiful with the sunlight shining on them.
I'm not sure what kind of orchid this one is...
