It is always difficult to predict the blooming of the cherry blossoms on the national mall, the current prediction for peak date is March 20th. Florists have a little more leeway, we can force blooms early and get them from up north when the local ones are finished blooming. This year blooms are coming early, more than 2 weeks earlier than last year. I used them earlier this week at an event at Rogue 24 and for an Architects photo shoot. This coming weekend they will decorate a wedding at the Tabard Inn and another at Longview Gallery. Because of the early heat, up and down the east coast I am concerned about availability for a couple of my mid-April brides–– luckily all sorts of other beautiful flowers will be available…enjoy them while they last!
