Pink Cherry Blossom Flu hits New Haven Hard!

No shows and going home sick early, rampant all over New Haven County.


Pink Influenza. Hanami Hot Flashes.

Seasonal Sakura Sickness.

You never know when it will hit. Sometimes in late March or anytime after that. 

This flu is unpredictable, can come on slowly, or bam, you wake up and have this 
strange mood to head to Wooster Square.

No, not because of the Apizza smell.

Suddenly, your head is spinning and your boss lets you go. (Foaming at the mouth can also be effective in an early dismissal slip).

You're in the car, calling all your friends and before you know it, you are all walking 
in Historic Wooster Square, admiring
the cause of this Seasonal Sakura Sickness.

The Cherry Blossoms are Blooming!

Not quite yet peaking, but pretty close.
This weekend will be ideal for 
your Hanami Happiness!

Saturday the Wooster Square Farmer's Market is right across the street!

Grab some grub, join the hub bub.

Great day for a 
Pink Park Picnic People!

Bring a blanket and enjoy. 

Don't forget your camera!

Feel free to post photos on the 
Wooster Square Blossom Blog
Facebook Page!



I'll be out later today and tomorrow
taking more photos and 
a post tomorrow afternoon.

Enough said!

Hey, you don't look so good...
you feelin OK?

Let's look at the park 
from yesterday afternoon!

Academy & Chapel St.

Notice our perpetually blooming tree to the left,
(it blossomed on New Years Day)
it has only spotty blossoms and is
having a tough time of it this year.

Hurrah for the pink white and blue!
