Jefferson Memorial is seen trough cherry blossom trees adjacent to the Tidal Basin on the National Mall in Washington, DC, on March 17, 2012. The iconic trees are beginning to bloom, with the National Park Service forecasting peak bloom between March 20 and 23, one of the earliest years on record due to warmer than average temperatures.
