We’re back from a fantastic weekend in Washington DC with happy news. Although my continental breakfast room service was going to be late “due to the snow”, the Cherry Blossoms in DC survived just fine, thank you very much.
So while the fluffy white stuff fell softly from the sky, accumulating in little patchy clumps like so much lint from a load of white towels, the beloved and beautiful blossoms prevailed and made for a remarkable framework around the Tidal Basin in our nation’s capital. Thinking of going to the National Cherry Blossom Festival? Worry not, and while you visit the official website, you can donate to the relief efforts in Japan, the country responsible for gifting us with those magnificent trees.
