They’re coming! According to the just-held National Cherry Blossom Festival press conference this morning, the expected ‘bloom date’ is going to be…
April 3 through April 9! Keep in mind this is when 70 percent of the blossoms of the Yoshino Cherry trees that surround the Tidal Basin are open.
Admit it, you all have been waiting for this. (Just like me.) And don’t forget that the actual Festival this year runs from March 28 through April 12, so remember to take lots of photos and drop them into our Flickr pool!
Hell yeah I’ve been waiting for this. If loving the cherry blossoms is wrong, I don’t want to be right.

I at least now know when my allergies will be at its worst.
