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.
No. Peak bloom was April 10, 2014, and the cherry blossoms have come and gone for the year.
It was a later-than-average bloom because of a colder-than-average and long winter. We had late snows on the cherry trees and some scorching hot days around peak bloom. Peak bloom itself fell on a weekend, so if you were lucky enough to be in town then you were treated to a beautiful (and very crowded) spectacle.
If you’d like to see what you missed, all of the photos above are from 2014.
If you’re looking ahead to the 2015 cherry blossoms, you can find much more information on the front page of the Cherry Blossom Watch site.

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:
