Spring is here! Tuesday marks the official first day of spring and signs of the season can already be seen around the country. The grass is growing, the sun is shining and in D.C., the cherry blossoms are blooming.

Frequently asked questions (FAQ):

How do I start using Instagram?

To use Instagram, you must have an iPhone or iPod. Download the app (iTunes) and follow the on-screen instructions to set up an account and start snapping photos.

Reminder: Include #leafscape in the caption. More questions about the app? Check out the Instagram FAQ.

What if I don’t have an iPhone?

Although this project is Instagram only (and therefore iPhone/iPod only) for now, we are planning to support other photo apps in the future.

What other Instagram projects is The Post running?

We started off with #econdebate, our first experiment in using Instagram to visualize what the economy looks like across the country. That project has transformed in the larger 2012 Unfiltered.
