Where is Spring?!

After saying “Happy Spring” last week and posting pictures of flowering trees, it was quite shocking to step outside this morning and see the beautiful, fully-in-bloom trees covered with snow! It was a pretty sight to see, but I’m REALLY ready for warm, sunny weather. My friend and fellow blogger, Lauren, was telling me that the St. Louis area also got some unexpected snow.  It really seems like winter has been especially long this year and now I know it’s not just in our heads!

How’s the weather by you?

DC’s Annual Cherry Blossom Festival

It was a misty first day of this year’s National Cherry Blossom Festival, but nothing could take away from this gorgeous display of nature. The festival marks the original gift of 3,000 cherry trees by the city of Tokyo to the people of Washington, DC in 1912. The festival takes place this year between March 28th and April 12th. Peak bloom period has been predicted to occur between April 1 – 4.  Don’t miss this incredible sight!
