Wooster Square Sakura Survive Super Soaking

Rain Reigns Region Ruthlessly

There is nothing better than the Weekends here in our Precious Perfect Patch we call Wooster Square. Sent off on a mission this morning to help Cheryl, Zippy and I made a loop around our Gateway to New England. Chyna stayed back as her teensy tiny tootsies get terribly tired on tremendous treks. (Don't feel bad, she got to accompany the Blossom Blogger later as I finally got out and took some photos). I looped over to Audubon and they are setting up for a whole day of arts and crafts for the whole family. 

As I traveled up Wall Street I could not get over the amount of people that are in New Haven as tourists. I walked through the heart of Yale by Sterling Library up to Chapel street. I have even seen buses of people with someone pointing out Super City Sights. People were out in droves after the deluge we had over the past 24 hours. And walking back on Chapel Street towards World Famous Wooster Square you are joined by dozens of people walking from Downtown to our Famous Friendly Farmers Market.

The Wild Wet Wooster Square Weather has given way to the sun and the Park is Packed with Picnicking People and their Pets. A perfect Saturday morning for all who came to enjoy the Square. 

It wasn't rainy all week. We did manage a some sunshine and I was out to see what I could find. One morning walk Chyna and Zippy brought me to a tree that is a Blossoming Beauty!

Later Saturday finds an uncommonly cool crisp springlike day. Although when the Sun was Shining on our Sweet Sakura Square, we were at a perfect 74 degrees by afternoon. 

Hard to believe its over a month since our World Famous Wooster Square Cherry Blossoms were over on April 29, 2013. It seems like almost yesterday we were in a...
