Washington's cherry blossoms bloom despite cold snap

Early morning fog mutes the color of cherry blossoms on Washington’s famous cherry trees surrounding the Tidal Basin near the Jefferson Memorial, Monday, March 27, 2017. This year’s bloom was different from in the past because cold weather killed half of the blossoms on the Yoshino cherry trees just as they were reaching their peak. The National Park Service says on its website that peak bloom was reached Saturday, March 25, 2017. (J. Scott Applewhite/AP)
A mild winter followed by a spate of cold weather in Washington, made its mark on the city’s cherry blossoms, but the annual festival delighted first-time visitors on Sunday. The cherry blossom trees were a gift from Japan to the United States in 1912. The cherry blossom trees currently grow in three National Park Service locations, including the Tidal Basin, Hains Point and on the Washington Monument grounds.
