Part 2: DC's 2011 Cherry Blossom Festival

I was asked by Kg if all the Cherry Trees at the Tidal Basin are white, usually these Yoshino Trees produce white flowers at full peak, then gradually turns pale pink as they wither and fall. But, there are Cherry Trees, which I'll show at a later post, that produce dark pink flowers the whole two-week blooming season.

Here are a few more photos I took at the Tidal Basin:

  1. In the fall, wouldn't the leaves be really colorful too? Why haven't we seen autumn shots of these showy trees? Just wondering!

  2. @ Photo Cache, Yes, they are colorful in the fall too. I usually don't venture to the Tidal Basin during the fall for two reasons: 1) i like the fall foliage at the skyline ridge and 2.)

  3. Your photos are stunning and the place is absolutely gorgeous.
