WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- Thanks to our warm temperatures, the cherry blossoms have reached their peak and visitors and locals are scrambling to enjoy the sights before Mother Nature gets the best of the blossoms.

Pat Mendel from St. Louis was taking in the cherry blossoms in full bloom on Monday at the Tidal Basin. "It's unbelievable," said Mendel.

The blossoms are a sure sign of spring in D.C. and the sights are simply picture perfect, whether the blossoms are the star of the show or a background performer. The cherry blossoms are sure to please any photographer.

Even locals who've seen the cherry blossoms year after year say they never get old.

"Never, I can see them everyday," said one person at the Tidal Basin on Monday.

"We've been coming for 17 years and they're wonderful," shared another local.

But Mother Nature could rain on this parade. If expected showers come our way, they could wash them all away. But at least you can say it was good while it lasted.
