I had heard on another forum that I participate on that the cherries were in bloom on the University of Washington campus. I was pretty amazed since they did not bloom until almost mid-April last year. It was a late spring last year and this year is an early spring - but six weeks!
I took a trip this weekend to the campus and they were in bloom. It was a wonderful sunny day and everyone was enjoying Spring. Everywhere I turned, I heard the snap of a camera or saw another person taking a photography. I went with the flow.
The trees were beautiful. The day was mild. It was an enjoyable time. I especially liked the beautiful Magnolias. Today... there are a few flurries of snow and the temperatures have dropped back down to the low 40's.
