Cherry Blossom Chamber Music Charms Wooster Square

World Class Musicians and Neighbors Perform For Us and our Pink and White Delights

After our 2 day respite of warmth the Square is back to its chilly beginnings. However, we are looking at one fine day for Sunday, the 40th Annual Cherry Blossom Festival.  Chief Blossom Blog Climate Advisor Gil Simmons says Sunday should be sunny and 55 in the Wonderful World of Wooster Square. Perfect day for a festival after this rainy, cold and dreary Friday. 

What a great excuse to get out of the house tonight at 7:30 and head to Wooster Square for the 15th Annual Pre Cherry Blossom Chamber Concert in St. Michael's. All are welcome and the event is FREE! One of the best things about living in the Square is meeting all of these other fabulous talented Wooster Squarians. If you can't make the concert be sure to come for the Festival on Sunday between noon and 5pm. 

The Cherry Blossoms from our Beloved Sakura trees will be continuing their plumpness to explosion right before your eyes on Sunday. Just in one day look how much further they are on Hughes Place than yesterday, in two days they will be on their way to Pink Madness. 

Just Yesterday

Just Plain Exciting!

Raindrops a fallin on my Buds,
Makes me see Pink Nation!

Today was even difficult to stand up on the Blossom Perch to take today's photo. The wind driven rain makes for a wet and foggy lens.
Hopefully, tomorrow the weather will drive our buds on Hughes Place into a White and Pink Fairyland for Sunday's Cherry Blossom Festival. 

Pre Festival Concert: Friday 7:30
Cherry Blossom Festival: Sunday Noon to 5pm
