Blossoms by the Basin

I got back today from DC. I had a great trip, got to see the cherry blossoms and the grand kids in one visit! Now I can check cherry blossoms in DC off my "bucket list". If you haven't seen them in person, you really should try someday. Yesterday they were soooo gorgeous over at the Tidal Basin. Don't know if I spelled that right, anyway we went over to the FDR Memorial and the trees were in full bloom and gorgeous. I got some great pictures and I want to share a few. Tomorrow I will be back stamping getting ready for my stamp club. Maybe I'll have something to show you later this week. Maybe a new addition to the family. My daughter in law graciously waited for me to get home before having her baby. Now I am waiting for Jaxon to arrive. Until then enjoy the beauty of God's handiwork.

The cherry blossoms were not the only trees blooming. The Tulip Trees were in bloom everywhere as well as the yellow forthisia (I know this is not the right spelling but maybe you know what I'm talking about). The daffodils were in bloom too. It was just all beautiful!
