Cherry Blossoms and Wildflowers in DC

Each spring the District of Columbia is a wildflower lovers dream.

We have the best display of cherry blossoms, but we also have so many beautiful wildflowers in our parks.

Spring has arrived early and the cherry blossoms are in full bloom in the middle of March! Usually it is early April.

Tom and I visited the tidal basin on Sunday in the late afternon. The traffic was at a standstill. We tried hard to relax while it took an hour to move several blocks.

We were rewarded with great views of the blossoms. Nothing better!



  1. I have a friend who is on her way to DC today to check off “cherry blossoms in bloom in DC” on her bucket list.

    I hope they look as beautiful when she arrives.
