Pedestrians walk past the cherry blossoms along the Tidal Basin with the Washington Monument in the background, which are beginning to bloom during spring-like weather March 16, 2012 in Washington, DC. The trees, a gift from Japan decades ago, usually don't bloom until April, but the recent mild winter has pushed the blossoming up by at least two weeks. UPI/Mike Theiler
