While the official National Park Service bloom watch shows the Tidal Basin cherry trees as just entering the puffy white stage today, some of our local cherry blossoms are already blooming! We found a few examples by a local road and other ones that are likely going to start opening very soon. Also in the region, we’re waiting for the cherry trees at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens to bloom, that is expected to happen at the end of the month.
These trees, located along a local road, are just about in full bloom. They’re quite pretty! Historically, this group of 6 or 7 trees bloom at the same time.
The other trees in the area are getting close though lagging behind.
