Due to other commitments, we haven’t opened our Cherry Tree desk this year.
HaveCameraWillTravel blogger has been doing a great job with coverage. It notes the NPS declared yesterday as the beginning of the peak for the annual “hello spring” walk around the Tidal Basin. Blooms are looking great.
If you are looking for the trivecta - peak bloom, peak weather, peak crowds - looks like Sunday is your best bet.
Locals who have learned to stay away on such occasions might look to this afternoon or Monday. All bets off by Tuesday.
Paula O’Keefe snapped this beaut of a shot yesterday, which kicked off the run of great days.
Enjoy if you go. Welcome sweet spring time!!
