Weekly Highlight: DC Cherry Blossom Season

ICYMI or are having serious FOMO on the highlight of the DC Spring season!

I’ve wrapped up a few of my favorite pics from this year’s bloom. This is undoubtedly my favorite event of the year in the National Capital Region. It brings everyone together over the beauty of nature much like the turning of the leaves in Fall.

Peak bloom was on Monday (1 April), but the blossoms persist for a few weeks if you can make it out there!



We’re quickly transitioning to Petalpalooza where all the petals are dropping; creating a beautiful, snow-like effect on the ground.

Here’s a few of our favorite shots from people we follow on Instagram!
