The Cherry Blossom Festival here in Washington D.C. has begun. The date for them to be in full bloom is on Saturday. I really enjoy viewing the cherry blossoms because not only are they pretty, but I know spring is upon us too. This year, however, spring has come late. The calendar says it’s April and the cherry blossoms are out but you wouldn’t know that by the way the it feels outside. I had to wear a jacket yesterday because it was so cold. I like the cold season but right about now, I’m ready for spring.
