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.
It’s still cold. Although the layer of snow has gone for now, there’s still a layer of ice covering much of the Tidal Basin. And the weather forecast for the coming week is still very much a winter forecast–temperatures below average and a series of possible snow/rain/ice/sleet events. In other words, there’s still a ways to go before we start seeing some cherry blossom action.
On the back of a colder than average December and January, unless it gets much warmer soon and stays that way, it’s looking like the bloom might be on the later side this year. That said, it’s still too early to make any reliable predictions.
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:
