Due to the end of March forecasting snow and more freezing weather, the National Park Service has now joined the forecast of the Capital Weather Gang, for a peak bloom of the Cherry Blossoms to be between April 3-6. This is FANTASTIC news for me as I now have more of an opportunity to get down there to take photos. I had alternate obligations for next week which was their initial prediction for the blooms.

If you are planning on coming to the DC area to experience the Cherry Blossoms, keep an eye on the bloom watch. As they start filling in the squares, their predictions become more and more accurate.
With Spring comes the promise of warmer temperatures, colorful blooms, and the reminder that life grows and flourishes even after the dormancy of winter.
I am also going to start offering the opportunity for my readers to guest blog to show of some of your Springtime photos. Please email me at ~ travelingheartsphotography(at)gmail.com if you are interested!
