This post should be named "pink and yellow" because the daffodils, now in bloom all over Capitol Hill, are never ever pink, but the cherry and pear tree blossoms are the most delicate, creamy, barely pink pink that you ever saw. They're just starting to pop. They're so delicious I want to eat them ... weird I know, but true.
Daffodils are certainly cheerful but they don't draw my eye like the tree blossoms, don't know why. No offense to all you daffodil lovers out there. From now till the end of the Cherry Blossom Festival, my eyes will be turned towards the sky. I'll be watching the trees turn from their currently fuzzy appearance into full-on Disneyesque cartoon poof balls of pink.
Sometimes we have late season snowfalls in March, but I don't see that coming. Seems to me it's too late to turn back the season. The bloom has just started, but those little luv clouds of pink look mighty serious to me. Spring is here to stay. Welcome, spring!
