From an email:

“After welcoming 8,000 visitors in 2018, we are delighted to announce the return of Bloomia’s Field of Tulips to the District.

For one weekend, The Park at CityCenter [1098 New York Ave, NW] will be transformed into an interactive, urban garden covered in more than 40,000 tulips. Guests are welcome to visit the Field of Tulips April 26 – April 28 from 10:00 am – 6:00 pm.

Roaming the garden is free to all and tulips may be taken home for $1 a stem with a portion of all proceeds benefitting DC Central Kitchen.”

Thanks to Terry for passing on from Behnke Nurseries:

“As I look out over the garden center, it seems like a Spring season like all the others through our 89 year history. I see a nursery full of beautiful plants and fine staff, some of whom have worked here most their lives, and I’m so proud to be a part of this wonderful organization.

But with great sadness, I must tell you that this 2019 Spring season will be our last. (more…)

From the Cleveland Park Listserv:

“And sitting next to me on the bus, with his arms loaded with Rhodos. I wish we could chip in and get this guy a patch at the local community garden, anyone? It’s sad. He obviously likes plants and needs a better way of making a living.”

In 2013 the thief made it into the New York Times. In 2016 the thief may or may not have been arrested. In 2019 the saga continues.

And this is no joke.

From the National Mall:

“Peak Bloom Update! – Determining the peak bloom date requires checking both the forecast and where the trees are in the blooming process. The indicator tree is in full bloom & with temps forecast for the upper 70s this weekend, we now predict peak bloom will occur April 1!”

The previous peak bloom was predicted for April 3rd-6th.
