It's Cherry Blossom Time

One of my favorites things about February (besides Valentine's Day, President's Day and my birthday!) is the cherry blossoms. It makes me sad that they only bloom for one month each year, but oh what a month. Cherry blossoms are a wonderful surprise. They keep you guessing... how long until they blossom? Will it be another three weeks, two weeks, next week? Maybe in just a few days? And when you least expect it, there they are. Greeting you as if to say, "winter is almost over, hang in there"!

Last week I noticed the buds. And then, boom - here they come, bringing smiles all around. Enjoy them while you can.
