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.
We’ve had a few days of warm weather to remind us what spring is like. There are even some daffodils coming out around the Mall. But we’re now back to cold and windy. From 60s and even 70s in the past few days, a cold front overnight brought us back to earth and we’re now back in the 20s.
The cold front brought strong winds. And they’ve taken its toll on at least one of the trees which has lost a large branch.
From a distance, the trees still look grey. Over the next week or two they should start getting a reddish brown tint from the buds changing color.
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:
