Cherry blossoms on the National Mall

I don’t really keep a bucket list, but one of the things I have always wanted to do is to see the cherry blossoms on the Mall in Washington, DC.

I finally got to do that – sort of. . . .

The other day I decided to photograph the Washington Memorial as the sun set.

Cherry blossoms appear on the National Mall

See those trees?

I was surprised to find that at least some of them seem to be cherry trees.

And they are in bloom.

So now I have seen the cherry blossoms in Washington, DC. . . . Except it is November and the cherry trees definitely should not be in bloom.

It’s beautiful, but rather confusing.
