Washington D.C. Cherry Blossom "Peak Week" has been moved up to March 18 -23. I have seen them blooming already in these parts how about you? If you have never been to this event, it's crowded but it is blooming beautiful, my new hashtag for spring, blooming beautiful#. Not really, I don't even know what a hashtag is exactly but I am sure some one tweets on it. Revised: peak bloom predicted March 23-24. I guess the predicted Nor'easter put a kibosh to the early bloom.
