Cherry BlossomCherry Blossoms

As anyone in the Washington DC area knows, the Cherry Blossoms around the Tidal Basin are a big deal and something we look forward to seeing every year. There are not too many harbingers of spring better than seeing this spectacular show of blooms.

This year, the National Park Service has moved up the peak bloom period up nearly two weeks earlier than normal. They expect the trees to be at their best from March 18 to March 23. The cause of this is the expected nearly record warm temperatures. Mark your calendar to enjoys this event.

As always, if we can help you with any of your landscape needs, please feel free to contact us.
