Cherry Blossoms in Bloom

Published: April 6, 2021 Author: Staff reports

Each spring more than 200 cherry blossom trees on the Ohio University campus in Athens produce spectacular blooms, to the delight of Bobcats and community members near and far. During the 2021 season, photographers from University Communications and Marketing documented the famous trees, from the opening of the first buds to the splendor of the trees in full bloom.
