Staying Stylish in Suburbia

Cherry Blossom Festival

Saturday, April 13, 2013

Spring has sprung!!!! Feeling mighty lucky to be in D.C. this year for the annual cherry blossom festival. What an explosion of pretty pink petals! 

National Public Radio put a call out to it's listeners for cherry blossom inspired haikus. I've included a few of my favorites to go along with the pictures. I hope the trees and flowers are blooming wherever you're at too. Enjoy!

Seen these trees turned into clouds
But I cannot forget

cherry blossom rain
sound of a love song passes
with the traffic
