Whelp, a few days ago I looked outside my window and saw that my FAVORITE trees are blooming flowers! Cherry Blossoms! YAY! The first sign of spring, as far as I'm concerned. I find these trees just absolutely stunning, especially because at least in these here parts, the flowers bloom, and we get to revel in their glory for a few weeks, and than they die. It's such a short period of time that I've learned to REALLY enjoy them while they are here. Maybe it will cheer up those of you bitching about the cold.
