Hello everyone :) I finally have the feeling of the spring time! And all because of the cherry blossom trees. Cherry Blossom is one of my most favorite events of the year :) It became a tradition for me to go to the Tidal Basin to watch these beautiful blooming trees every spring. I must say it is especially important this year. The gift of 3000 cherry trees was from the Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo to the city of Washington, DC in 1912. The gift honors the lasting friendship between the United States and Japan.
I'm glad we went to see the cherries yesterday when it was sunny and beautiful. Guess what? Today is ridiculously cold, dark and rainy :)
