Cherry Blossoms Arrive at Nats Park

Image

Washington’s famed Cherry Blossoms, on average, reach peak bloom on April 4, which would normally be just in time for Opening Day. But this year’s weather has been anything but normal, and the lingering cold weather in March left the Nationals’ Cherry Blossom trees bare when the Nats and Marlins kicked off the season two weeks ago (see below).

Now, the trees are in peak bloom, or it at least appears that way. The below photos were taken shortly after the Nats-Braves disaster on Sunday. Not a bad distraction from a terrible weekend of baseball for the Nationals. When they return to town next week, these trees may look very different.
