Yes folks, you guessed it from the title, we missed the Cherry Blossoms.
I knew peak viewing was last weekend, but I remained hopeful...
I thought if I wished and hoped hard enough,
the blossoms would stay on the trees, long enough for me to see them.
But they didn't!
We have visited the past few years, making hotel reservations months in advance,
you have to keep an eye on the "bloom predictions"...
and hope you guessed right.
But we didn't!
Spring came early this year and with all the wind here in the northeast, everything was gone,
even the pretty pedals on the ground.
We did however see 3 late blooming trees which did allow me to get a few pictures.
Don't get too excited...most of these are close ups and all from the same tree.

Spring came very early this year for Washington, D.C., better luck, for us, next year!!
