The Trust For The National Mall has relaunched its Bloom Cam, a live camera where you can watch the sakura trees 24/7!
If we can’t go to the cherry blossoms then the cherry blossoms will come to us! That was the idea behind the Trust For The National Mall’s Bloom Cam, when they created it last year just in time for peak bloom and the start of quarantine. They teamed up with the NPS, the National Cherry Blossom Festival and EarthCam to bring the beautiful blossoms into our home, and now they’re turning on once again to help everyone enjoy DC’s beautiful sakura trees safely.
The Bloom Cam has relaunched just as authorities have announced they would be closing off access to the Tidal Basin in case of overcrowding.
Thanks to the Trust’s 24/7 live cam you’ll be able to enjoy the over 3,000 sakura trees in and around the Tidal Basin from home and just in time for peak bloom! The live feed changes view every 5 minutes so we can enjoy the beautiful sakura trees from all angles as they bade the Basin in a stunning sea of white and pink.
“The Trust wants to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to view these beautiful blooms that are part of a living cultural landscape and treasured history,” stated Trust officials on their website. So if you’re choosing to stay at home but wish to enjoy the cherry blossoms in all their peak bloom glory make sure to give the Bloom Cam a try!
You can access the live Cherry Blossoms camera on the Trust’s website.
