The Washington Cherry Blossom Festival is coming to a close this weekend – April 12th.
Did you fight the crowds to see the gorgeous blossoms?
The Cherry blossoms have been blooming around the tidal basin for over 100 years. The plantings of cherry trees originated in 1912 as a gift of friendship to the people of the United States from the people of Japan. In 1934, the District of Columbia Commissioners sponsored a three-day celebration which has been expanded over the years to the two week festival we have today.
Look for great spring flower designs in our spring section. We sometimes even feature a cherry blossom bouquet.
