Big bloom coming March 27?

National Park Service forecasters say the cherry blossom peak bloom will be March 27-30. I dunno. Something in me says it will be a week earlier. I’ve lived here nearly 60 years as a native so I know local weather. Oh well, we’ll see who’s right.

Meanwhile, don’t forget the magnolias, which usually peak bloom a week earlier. The ones by the Smithsonian Castle are the best. Personally, I like them better than the cherry blossoms.

UPDATE: Forecasters now say March 22-25. When will they learn to trust me?
