When Will D.C.’s Cherry Blossoms Open?

Our weirdly warm winter in Washington means the cherry blossoms could bloom much earlier than expected. The National Park Service initially gave April 4 as the expected peak date. Now, we could see them well before that. There are many varieties, however, so the blooming dates will vary somewhat.

The Washington Post produced a nice video showing how to follow the progress of the buds to estimate the blooming time.

      Thanks, Suzanne. My biography of Eliza Scidmore is coming every closer to the home stretch, and I look forward to sharing her story more fully with readers like you.
