|Yoshino cherry blossoms|
It sure took its time, but spring finally arrived with a vengeance here. We went from the 50's to the 80's in five days. And every plant and tree that has been holding back has finally burst into bloom. The famed cherry blossoms around the Tidal Basin in Wasjington, DC finally bloomed three days ago. So many tourists have come to see them in the last two weeks and have missed their blooming.
There are some Bradford pear trees in the neighborhood that just put out their flowers today. I know they are a problematic tree, but I love their blossoms and their chalky fragrance. Here are some photos from my yard of what has just bloomed.
These tulips in the back yard are up but not a one is blooming. I still have some hyacinths that are holding out also.
