The unusually warm weather in March brought out the famous Washington, DC cherry blossoms much earlier than normal. I had hoped when I was visiting this week to be able to photograph them. Not to be deterred, I found lots of springtime color like these flowering dogwoods in front of the US Supreme Court.
Tulips are the flower of choice currently around the capital including the White House.
A cool, windy morning in front of the US Capitol building kept the tulips closed as they were being blown about. Taken during the first golden hour of sunrise.
