I have been watching the DC Bloom Watch like a hawk this year. Initially it posted the peak bloom date as April 1st, so I went down on March 31st and the blossoms were spectacular. It was like walking through a dream. Last year the blooms blew away so quickly that I barely had a chance to enjoy them, so I didn’t want to let the opportunity slip away this year. I went again on April 6 and what a difference 6 days made. Most of the blooms had fallen away. There were some tucked away safely on tree trunks and under overpasses that seemed intact.
I love this one of my daughter and I by my dear friend Stephanie at The Hip Studio in Leesburg. Thanks Stephanie!
