April in DC: Couplets

They herald happy news that Spring Is Here!
But a Tidal Basin trudge? No, not this year.

They’re lovely yes, but just not worth the mobs
Of strollers, tourists, traffic. (Yes, we’re snobs.)

So our DC wisdom grows by leaps and bounds:
To beat the crowds, view these on the Capitol grounds.

    Yeah – we did the Tidal Basin one year, but went about 10 a.m. in the middle of the week. It really wasn’t bad! Washingtonian Mag always posts a list of “other places” to see the cherry blossoms…

    But it is truly one of the most beautiful sights!

    Sure, the blossoms are pretty enough. But if you ask me, it’s those adorable kids that make the picture worthwhile. 🙂 Too cute!

    Has the kite festival happened yet? That is one of my favorite spring D.C. things.

    i’ve found that going on a dreary (even drizzly) day works. the trees have a different kind of beauty on that kind of day and the crowds are certainly more manageable.

    Yes, I’m with Teri. Glad to have your new blog in the community!
    My childhood memories include the Tidal Basin in cold drizzle and happy sunshine, too. Great picture!
