and it Isn't Just the Cherry Blossoms either
Yesterday, according to The Washington Post, was "the peak day of blossom season" here in DC, and no matter that it was a Wednesday, the crowds filled the tidal basin and the Mall.
It isn't just the cherry blossoms bursting into flower, either, it's all sorts of flowers in every shape and color: tulips and magnolia and hyacinths and daffodils and pansies
and azaleas and others I can't name.
Oh, and one other thing is in bloom. Good moods. Something about the blossoms, it seems to fill the air with a kind of magic dust. People keep staring and smiling and staring some more and smiling wider. And taking photos. Everyone, every age, with a camera, or just a phone.
I've decided to rename the flowers
Why not just call them cheery blossoms?
