Very Cherry

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   Very Cherry
Very Cherry

----
The early blast of summery weather in southeast Pennsylvania (and all over the U.S.) caused the cherries to blossom way early. Most have gone by now, well in advance of the official Cherry Blossom Festival in Philadelphia on April 15. I guess we will just have to celebrate TAX DAY!
------
This pretty little bloom was photographed in a small park on the Schuylkill River, less than a mile from Boat House Row.

Wonderful shot, Mickey! I think everything is out of whack this year..I have some of the wildflowers that should be there, and some that should be are not..go figure.

I wonder how the DC cherry blossoms are doing? I know people plan vacations around them, months in advance. I guess it's like fall colors....can never really predict when they'll peak. Nice work on this one, Michelle!
