Cherry Blossom Bliss!

Oh, how pretty they are! 
The Cherry Blossoms are in full bloom in DC (despite the cold)! 
It always surprises me how quickly the normally sparse trees fill with beautiful pinky white blossoms.
They inspire all sorts of designs - from Cocktails to Fabric... 

Arnold Palmer with Cherry Blossom Tea - Don't mind if I do!

I'll never pass up a cocktail, especially not a Cherry Blossom Cocktail

Wellies as a vase - why not?

 Pink Macaroons accented by a Cherry Blossom Sprig - looks delic to me! 

Cherry Blossom Fabric

This year the Cherry Blossoms, given to the US as a gift from Japan, serve as a reminder of the devastation in Japan and the National Cherry Blossom Festival has incorporated many opportunities for tourists to pay tribute to the victims in Japan and make donations to support Japan relief efforts.
