|9:30 p.m. - Happy Peak Bloom!|
Finally, here in the DC area we can say it: Happy Spring! (It's now feeling more Summery than I'd like, but you take what you can get.)
I'm not really up to saying anything coherent, so I'll leave you with a link to a visualization of the Cherry Blossom Festival and Peak Bloom Dates.
Also, a quiz result which should surprise no-one who has seen me recently:
You Are Rapunzel
You are shy and a bit sheltered. You're curious about the world, and you want to break free!
You sometimes feel like you're waiting for your life to begin. There's so much you want to see and do.
You're still trying to figure out who you are and your place in the world. You're not sure what you who you want to be yet.
You are resourceful and brave. Once you are given a little freedom, you boldly go after what you want.
It's the hair. I'm sure this is all about the hair.
happy spring! i hope you get some milder weather to enjoy with it too!
We quickly went from cold weather to springlike weather to summery weather. Now we're back in spring again. It's a bit confusing.
I am experiencing sakura intoxication, as I have a gorgeous, double pink flowered cherry tree in my new front yard with which I am utterly besotted.
The Yoshino cherry trees (the ones that bloom in such famous profusion in Washington, Dc) were at peak bloom for about two days before they started dropping their petals on the ground. The pink double-blossomed Kwanzan cherry trees are already trying to take up the slack, though!
