    Post your photos of the 2019 Cherry Blossoms. They should peak very soon. Today I walked around a bit and they were nearing the peak bloom.

    Hello I love Cherry trees and their blossoms. Your photos are lovely. Nashville has been planting cherry trees the last 15 to 20 years. The NFL is going to have their draft here in Nashville and they wanted stages outdoors so they were going to cut down 21 of our mature Cherry trees so they could build these outdoor stages. The howl went up and instead of relocating the stages, the city is going to relocate the trees. At least they are not cutting them down. Wonder how many will be lost in the move?

    Beautiful, thanks for posting!

    I was on the mall today for the kite festival with family and friends. Not much time for photos, but this is my lame attempt at showing how many kites there were.

    The crowds were very large for the blossoms and the kites. Agree it was hard to capture the kites to show how many were flying. Here are my two kite photos.

    Thought about stopping by for some nice sunrise photos this morning on my way to work but the place was packed.

    Here’s a couple of ‘drive-by’ photos I took since there were NO parking spots available by 6:30am. I'll see if I can make it by 6 next time.

    I stopped by this morning before work but the lighting was generally bad and I could not wait for ideal conditions. Surprising how many people were there to see the Cherry Blossoms before sunrise this morning.

    This feels like a perfect blend of tourist, local, and photographer all rolled into one, heh

    Definitely true. Tourists flock here from all over the country. The locals run and walk around the area more than usual this time of year, and there are tons of photographers and even news crews setup to get just the right shot.
