It's a springtime tradition in Washington, before the leaves appear on the trees, the city's well-known cherry blossoms make their arrival. But this year unseasonably cold temperatures froze many of the buds as they were about to bloom. More than half survived, and as the delicate flowers came out this week, so did the visitors. VOA's Deborah Block went to Washington's Tidal Basin where people are enjoying the lovely views.
