These images were all made this weekend in Washington, DC. The first was outside the Smithsonian Castle, the second at the Smithsonian National Zoo, and the last two were at the Tidal Basin. The cherry blossom trees were on the cusp of full bloom, while the magnolias were hard at work being gorgeous. The first image is, if I recall correctly, the blooms of a Paper Tree. I have no idea what the second flowers were, other than beautiful.
