If you want to know when the cherry blossoms will hit full bloom, you can check Bloom Watch! The current prediction is April 8-12th.
Springtime is practically synonymous with the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C.
The festival runs March 20-April 13, 2014, but due to this year’s difficult winter, the blooms are more likely to bloom in April than they are in March.
Anyone who knows me in real life, knows that I’ve experienced my share of travel woes. But, every once in a while, I get lucky. Such was the case, two years ago, when our family planned a visit to D.C. for the Centennial celebration of the cherry blossoms. We hit the peak!
These are my own photos from that glorious few days. We paddled boated in the tidal basin to get a true panoramic view, but seeing them up close, in mass, was magical.
