The Cherry Blossoms

Hurray.  It's finally that time of the year.  After a long winter I am delighted to see the cherry blossoms again.  I was quite pleased that the trees delayed blossoming until my return from California.  Thanks cherry trees.  

Below are a couple of photos from this mornings adventure to the blossoms here in Washington DC.  Click for a full screen version.
