Lou Ludwig Success Tips: The Jefferson Memorial With Cherry Blossoms

The Jefferson Memorial With Cherry Blossoms

This is a great time of the year to be in Washington DC to enjoy the cherry blossoms. And anytime of the year is great time of the year to enjoy the Washinton lifestyle.

Good luck and success.

Lou Ludwig

Coming back from Capitol Hill yesterday, I decided to take a little detour past the Jefferson Memorial.  It's been hard to get a decent shot of it for a while now, as restoration work is getting in the way of framing a photo.  But yesterday, I guess the stars were aligned.

First of all, even with all of the tourists visiting the Washington's cherry blossoms, I actually found a parking space!  That meant I could get out of the car instead of taking photos leaning out the car window!  

The entire Tidal Basin is awash in fluffy, cotton candy cherry blossoms in full bloom.  And nature has been kinder this year than most.  We haven't had the obligatory wind and rain storms to blow the blossoms off their branches

And Mother Nature was kind to me, offering a day of clear, blue skies - although it was a little bit chilly.


Now it's time to stop goofing off and get back to work!  While Washington,'s cherry blossoms are just beautiful, my clients are calling!

Hi Lou, these are beautiful pictures and I absolutely adore the Yoshino cherry blossom trees.  They continue to plant more of these in Charlotte, but nothing like DC.  Beautiful...thanks for re-blogging.
