Cherry blossoms first glimpse

Cherry blossoms

It’s that time again.

The end of February has us longing for spring and with that the cherry blossoms to signal warm weather is here to stay. Not that it has been a bad winter in Washington, but who doesn’t wish for nice spring days before the humidity turns summer into a steam bath?

Trees along the Tidal Basin have started to bud, but just barely. My guess, which is as good as anyone’s given forecasters changed their official estimates three times last year, is peak bloom will be early. I’ll make the over/under March 23.
