This year we waited and waited and waited for the cherry blossoms. Then when they finally bloomed the second week of April it was 90 degrees! This made for only a couple of days of blossoms (they started opening on Monday and were gone by Thursday night) but I made the most of it! The blossoms were also really pink again this year, it must be the warm weather that gives them a little more color than usual.
So, on a dreary, cool day in Washington, DC, enjoy remembering warmer weather and the first signs of spring!
