DC Cherry Blossoms in 2021
It seems increasingly likely that DC will still be under COVID-19 restrictions in spring 2021 while the cherry blossoms are blooming. So it's shaping up to be a good year to follow along from afar from the safety and comfort of your home.
There’s still plenty to see at the Tidal Basin this morning. Yesterday’s rain and wind did take a toll, but the trees are holding up quite well so far.
From a distance, they still look wonderful. It’s only when you get a very close that you can see that they’re definitely on their way out now. Most of the petals that were blanketing the ground after the rain yesterday have scattered in the wind, so the evidence isn’t quite so obvious. There are more green leaves appearing now, but they’re still overwhelmed by the pink flowers.
If you head down to today, you won’t be disappointed. There’s still a lingering breeze this morning that should die out later. And the sun is out, with a beautifully clear sky. Parking is relatively easy, and while there are more people out today than yesterday morning, it’s still not crowded by any stretch.

Here’s a sense of what you can expect to see if you head down to the cherry blossoms today.
At this time of year, there are beautiful flowers to be had all over the place. Maybe in your backyard. Maybe in the local park.
These are ere are some of my favorite books that I've reviewed on taking photos of flowers:
