Traveling might still be out of the question for most, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a popular spring event. Those famous cherry blossom trees are in bloom in Washington, D.C., and this year, you can see them right from your couch!

The Trust for the National Mall has a livestream of the famous Tidal Basin near both the Jefferson and Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorials. The Bloom Cam also gives viewers a stunning view of the cherry blossom trees—just click play on the video player. The views change throughout the stream, providing multiple angles, and it’s also totally free!

The camera is currently undergoing updates, so you’ll see a time-lapse video from last year over the next few days. But, don’t worry, you won’t miss anything! The cherry blossoms don’t actually peak until the first week of April, so you have plenty of time to experience them in all their pink glory.

Just keep checking the website to see when the camera goes live.

While you wait, check out the cam on top of the Washington Monument for a fantastic view of the National Mall.
