blooming in d.c.
posted by soe 1:22 am


We came back to D.C. Monday to find more things blooming, including this bush near our apartment.

Peak bloom for the cherry blossoms down along the Tidal Basin will begin tomorrow and will carry on into next week, depending on whether you ask the National Park experts or the local meteorologists at the Washington Post. As Saturday is slated to bring cold and possibly even snow (for our first garden clean-up of the season — hooray!), the flowers are more likely to keel over from shivering than sweating. (It will also make our neighborhood stink because magnolia trees are definitely Southerners and they drop their flowers if the thermometer even thinks about dipping too low.)

oh, hoping you get a great show. We didnt have true magnoilas here, but something like them. They only seemed to bloom in glory for a day and then…poof, on good windy day and they were all petals on the ground. In itself that was beautiful though.
We are sure all in this icky spring weather together!!

There’s the possibility of snow in our forecast for Friday and Saturday. I’m still sort of kicking myself for not having walked in the snow much this winter, so if it snows again I’m going for a walk!
