Spring, At Last the Sun


So onto April and its blithering weather. But also to the flowering forth of a Kwanzan cherry tree so dependable and bountiful that it spreads over four backyards on Capitol Hill. All hail the mighty beauty, for baring mighty winds, the stately plant shows its flame for three weeks running. 

Then beware: Petals float down invariably, coating the ground in a pink carpet that inevitably crumbles into brown.

Another month soon gone, and mighty May is upon us. Surely a good month for travel in any hemisphere.
