#DCblooms

Washington's famous cherry blossoms may be in the Tidal Basin—but pockets of cherry trees can be found all over. We're bringing you a daily video portrait of cherry trees around the region—and asking you to share blossoms in your neighborhood below. You can also bookmark Going Out Guide's Stroll Around guide to the Tidal Basin and learn how researchers predict peak bloom.

Where are the cherry trees in your neighborhood? Tell us using #DCblooms.
