Connecticut has Four Seasons, and the best is yet to come!

Historic Wooster Square Cherry Blossoms Set to Peak on April 22, 2018!!

How can I be so certain?

Well, going on 6 years of predicting,
cajoling, promoting, explaining
and of course photographing these
funky fickle flowers... 
you get a feeling about this phenomenon!*
*I actually just take pictures everyday, so
that you know exactly what they look like
as they are starting bloom, peak and bust!

Blossom Mathematics

First, a quick Quiz:
Cherry Blossoms...
a. Peak in March, April or May
b. Peak whenever their good and ready.
C. When the Blossom Blogger tells me when they peak.

The Correct Answer? Yes.
(I never was really good in skool)

Peak Hughes Place

Anyone of these events has happened.
They have popped in March and 
stayed as late as May. 

We find a pattern. But they
don't ever follow exactly.

Rains and extreme winds after Peak?

Blossom Snow!
