Wooster Square Blossoms for the Holidays and final time for 2014
On a stroll around our sweet sakura square with Zippy and Roxie, something caught my eye. Right on the corner of sakura sunshine and hanami happiness (Academy Street and Chapel Street... Luisa Delauro Corner), I could not help but see a little pink and white delight poking out from the juvenile Cherry tree. This tree, I aptly named "Perpetually Blooming," is living up to its name. Luisa Delauro was responsible for bringing the Cherry Trees to Wooster Square Park (and turned 100 last year).
Having the dogs with me rather than my camera, I reached for my phone to take some photos. Unfortunately, I am the worst cell phone photographer in the world! I got home and looked at them and sighed. It's not that I don't have a decent cell phone, I just stink taking pictures with any phone. Unfortunately, Cheryl had the camera with her for her business. And not even the blossom mainframe with all its digits and bits couldn't make them photoblumentary material.
Fear not beloved blossom believers. Sunday morning we were treated to some snow showers that stayed most of the day with little to no accumulation. So when it let up a tad (a little more than a smudge), I went out to take some photos of our year end bonus blossoms!

Our relatively mild winter so far must have made for a perfect blossom storm. However, I have not found any other Sacred Sakuras that are blooming.
These Famous and Historic Blossoms came to wish everyone a
Happiest of Holidays,
to remind you of the simpler
things in this life.
"Sakuras sleep, dream;
Holiday wishes for you;
Peace and kindness all"
