Snow Dusts Spring Blossoms

Snow in April? It's not the image most of us have, or hope for, when we think of Easter in our Nation's capital. On rare occassions, Ol' Jack Frost gets stubborn about Spring and sends one last cold breath down South. On Easter Weekend, Washingtonians woke up to a light blanket of pure white snow that covered cherry blossoms, tulips, Daffodis, and many Spring wildflowers blooming around the the metro area. This stunning effect did not last long. Once the morning sun rays touched the snow it swiftly melted away. Winter was gone. Welcome Springtime.

Cherry Blossom in Washington DC Peak Bloom

West Potomac Park and the Tidal Basin with its flowering Japanese cherry blossom trees are under the care of the National Park Service. A horticulturist by the name of Robert DeFeo is the Park Service's cherry blossom expert and according to Mr. DeFeo peak bloom time (or peak bloom period) is defined as when 70 percent or more of Cherry trees are in full bloom. This is also the time which attracts tourists (both local and worldwide) to take pictures of cherry blossom trees so they can say they were a part of the DC cherry blossom experience.

Springtime in Washington

Spring is the most anticipated season in Washington. March flower blossoms awaken our Nation's capital with bright color. The coming of the golden daffodils and forsythia urge Washingtonians to celebrate, as did Vivaldi in his Concerto in E ('Spring' in The Four Seasons) and Beethoven in his rather blustery Spring Concerto. The Biblical Song of Songs pays tribute to this glorious time of year. "See, the winter is past, flowers appear upon the earth and the season of singing birds returns."
