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.
The cherry blossoms are looking glorious. They’re in full bloom, and it’ll be prime viewing over the weekend. On some trees, you can spot some of the green leaves poking through, but for the most part they’re covered in beautiful white flowers in their prime. Over the next few days, the white will turn to pink–when I personally think they look their best.
As we head deeper into next week, they’ll start to fade. Stay tuned for a post later today illustrating what to expect as we move forward.
The weather forecast is shaping up very nicely for the weekend, and it should be a great opportunity to cruise the Tidal Basin in a paddle boat.
It’s going to get very busy around the Tidal Basin and National Mall. It’ll a good weekend to leave the car at home and find another way into town (here are some ideas on how to get there).
The National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade kicks off at 10am Saturday on Constitution Avenue.
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:
