what’s blooming in d.c.: pre-easter edition

The cherry blossom season has mostly come to a close, although there are still some trees with blooms around the city. Dogwoods are currently flowering, as are the redbuds, which are particularly lovely this year.

Tulips are still out, but are starting to fade a bit. The irises are next up:

We saw wisteria and lilacs starting to flower yesterday, but they won’t come into their own until later this week:

And the azaleas will soon follow. I’m hoping to make it over to see the National Arboretum’s famed collection during peak bloom later this spring.

And, as I mentioned over the weekend, the violets are gorgeous right now. I’m crossing my fingers there are still some left in my garden by the time I get home next week from my visit to New England.

Lovely blossoms. We are just getting buds. Well, once the snow melted I saw a hyacinth about to bloom. We are so ready. Thunderstorms today. Hopefully after my sons lands in Chicago and we pick him up
