So when are the cherry blossoms coming?

Cherry blossomsThere’s a hint of color around the Tidal Basin.

It’s just a little wisp of red. Maybe I’m making more of it than I should, but spring seems to have finally found Washington after replacing snow with unrelenting rain for the past three days. Now we’re looking at warm temps and sunshine for a few days.

And that’s what cherry blossoms need.

The official forecast for peak bloom is April 8-12 and that’s probably true. But, you’ll start seeing cherry blossoms by midweeks. Just not the unrelenting soft pink and white blossoms they show in posters. But, head down to the Tidal Basin by week’s end if you want proof that winter is finally, finally over.

And say hi to one million new friends looking at the blossoms, too.
