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 Washington Post‘s Capital Weather Gang have issued their first peak bloom forecast for the season: “most likely between April 7 and April 11, centered on April 9.”
That’s very similar to the National Park Service forecast of sometime between April 8 and 12.
Last year the Capital Weather Gang’s forecast ended up being closer than the initial NPS forecast, although it was still a few days on the early side.
If you’d like to dive into the weather data that went into the forecast, you can find it 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:
