Went up to DC this past weekend, but because of the cold weather the cherry blossoms hadn’t bloomed yet. However, at City Center, there’s a section of pink lanterns in celebration of the Cherry Blossom Festival. The pink lanterns lit up the cold, rainy day.
Speaking of spring and blooming, today I weeded out the front yard! I am going to plant flowers next week after buying some dirt. Wish me luck. I’ve never grown flowers successfully and this is my first *big* garden project. However, I’m still on cherry blossom watch for Red Wing Park here in VB. I can’t wait to see those bloom. Cherry Blossoms remind me of home in Japan. The pink blossoms make me happy and everything in life halts.
