(Lititz, PA-LititzDailyNews.com) – To everything, there is a season, according to the biblical book of Ecclesiastes, which speaks of seasons in contrast.
The beautiful cherry blossoms in the nation’s capital are in bloom even as orders to stay home to mitigate the spread of coronavirus widen throughout the nation.
But thanks to the Endowment for the National Mall, many won’t have to miss the majestic spectacle of millions of pink petals dotting the trees surrounding the Tidal Pond this year, even if you can’t get to Washington, D.C.
The Endowment for the National Mall has set up a Bloom Cam in coordination with the National Park Service and the National Cherry Blossom Festival, which was cancelled this year due to the coronavirus. You can watch the blossoms live via the Bloom Cam here.
“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,” the site says.
The #BloomCam provides a 24/7, live, real-time view of the spectacle from a residential building 1331, where observers may see trees ringing the Tidal Basin, the stately Jefferson Memorial, and pedestrians who have come to visit.
“We hope that viewers will engage in our campaign to build the Cherry Tree Endowment and help spread the word to others that we’re supporting the long-term care and maintenance of these beloved Cherry Trees for generations to enjoy.”
