Although the official Cherry Blossom Festival is from May 2nd to May 3rd, I had heard the cherry blossoms were at full bloom already so I decided to check it out this past Saturday. BTW, BBG is free on Saturdays between 10am to 12pm except on special events.
I got there pretty much first thing in the morning. I was shocked to see that there were already lots of people there. Obviously they were thinking the same thing. Cherry Blossoms, Tulips, and most importantly, FREE!!!
Indeed, the cherry blossoms were in full bloom.
People were doing the usual. Just chilling out, taking photos, etc.
The colorful landscape made it a perfect time for painters…
Oh, and did anyone say TULIPS?!?
By the end of the day, my usually dormant allergies started acting up, so I made a quick getaway. LOL!
