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.
Today and tomorrow should start to feel a bit more like spring, with warmer temperatures and some sunshine. It should be mostly nice to be out and about, but the cherry blossoms still haven’t come out to play.
As you’d expect on a spring-like weekend morning, there are more people out today.
Ohio Drive SW between Independence Avenue and the Jefferson Memorial is now part of a one-way circuit to make it less chaotic with all the traffic coming in for the cherry blossoms. You can’t turn off Independence Avenue and head southeast toward the Jefferson Memorial–you can only go from the Jefferson Memorial toward the Kennedy Center. And be warned–there were tow trucks out this morning getting cars that had been illegally parked.
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:
