Friday Fotos: Cherry Blossoms Waiting To Happen

I snapped this one at the Tidal Basin from my car yesterday.  In another week, these trees will look like pink cotton candy when the cherry trees are in full bloom.  Right now, it's just a little hint of pink.  In a few days, it will be a lot harder to navigate this area in a car.  I'll have to take Metro and walk a mile or so through the throngs of tourists and natives who will be trying for the perfect photo!
