We Flower Duet sisters grew up just outside of Washington, D.C. and each year looked forward to the blooming Cherry Blossom trees around the Tidal Basin near the Jefferson Memorial. The blooms may be fading and turning into lush green leaves on the cherry trees by now, but there are still celebrations this weekend you can attend if you are close to our nation's capital. On Saturday, April 12th, there is a parade with celebrities and the largest Japanese festival outside of Japan. Learn more at the National Cherry Blossom Festival website. Visit the National Park website for more information on where to view the trees.
