Springtime in Washington is nothing short of spectacular. The cherry blossoms are in bloom and seeing them first-hand is an absolute treat. The first Yoshino cherry trees found in this area were originally planted in 1912, as a gift from Japan. Today, the National Cherry Blossom Festival heralds the start of spring and attracts people from all over. This beautiful time of year is the perfect opportunity to practice your photography skills, as there's no shortage of great photo-ops.
