Every spring, nearly 1,700 Cherry Blossom trees lining Washington DC’s Tidal Basin burst into color in a beautiful display of floral fireworks. But the peak bloom period lasts only a few days, and precisely when it happens varies each year. This site brings together information about visiting the cherry blossoms and Washington DC, peak bloom forecasts, and up-to-date photos so that you can plan your own visit or follow along from afar.
I now have a special section of this site dedicated specifically to the cherry blossoms, CherryBlossomWatch.com. You can find much more detail there, including information about the peak bloom forecast and visitor guides.
