APTOPIX Cherry Blossoms
In this photo taken, Tuesday, March 20, 2012, blooming Cherry blossom trees are seen just after sunset at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial along the tidal basin in Washington. This year marks the centennial of the trees, which were a gift from Japan to the United States in 1912. Due to unseasonably warm weather the trees are blooming earlier than usual.
