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 not a lot to see yet. The buds are clearly visible, but they’re in the early stages. The NPS arborists are out doing one of their two annual pruning rounds to keep the trees in tip-top shape. It’s still too early to predict the bloom, but sometime in the window of the last week of March through the first week of April is looking good (ie. an average year insofar as schedule).
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:
