Washington's famous cherry blossoms are even beautiful on a gray day. The much admired pink blooms came early this year
the 100th anniversary of their arrival

The FDR Memorial is embedded within the grounds near the cherry blossoms.
Washington's newest monument, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr., also amidst the blossoms
