And the blooms there do not stop when the notoriously fickle cherry blossom peak time is over, either. Last weekend, the cherry trees were at peak bloom, and the red buds weren’t far behind. This weekend, you should see some gorgeous dogwoods, more spectacular performance from the redbuds, and there may also be apple blossoms.
