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 Kwanzan cherry blossoms near the Tidal Basin and East Potomac Park are now coming into full bloom.
They still have some flowers yet to open, and I’ve seen many in nearby neighborhoods that seem to be a little ahead of these. But with their full, bright pink flowers, they’re looking beautiful.
These shots were taken this morning. Most are from East Potomac Park (near Hains Point), with a few from the ones near the Tidal Basin and FDR Memorial.
You can find more information about the Kwanzans, including a map showing where to find some of the major clusters, here.
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:
