Letterman Top Ten Tribute: 10 Totally Tantalizing Tempting Treats in Wooster Square's Treasure Trove

All Eyes on Historic Wooster Square

We wait. We heard it was spring...still suffer from the hour of sleep we lost...still put on winter coats and boots... 

Surprise Snow Slaps Sanguine Sakura Searchers Silly

We wait. 

But we are oh so close to when our Wonderful World of Wooster Square becomes the center of Worldwide Hanami Hysteria. Thousands make their way to Wooster Square to see our Super Square Surrounded by Beautiful Big Bright Blossoms. 

The blooming process is an exciting process to watch. Funny thing is, all you have to do is stay tuned to the world's #1 Photoblogumentary, the Wooster Square Blossom Blog. 

The closer we get, the more photos I will take and post more often, daily soon. So grab your dandy dependable doo dad device and do digitize directions! After this winter, we await those Fleetingly Fickle Fun Flowers.  

In Tokyo Japan, they are in the midst of their Peak Poppadge, picnicking sans pizza park people! 
(Certainly sucking sweet succulent 
savory sakura sake)

Sadly, once again, Washington DC's Cherry Blossoms are about as reliable as the House of Representatives agreeing on the time of day.

How good are we at telling you when our 
Salient Sakura Square Cherry Blossoms 
bountifully bust?

Why 100%!

In fact a study was authorized by the Obama Administration and funded by the WSBB (Wooster Square Blossom Blog), to rate "Predictiveness" 
(ie, cherry blossoms peaking, droughts, elections, sporting name it).

The Results of the Study are not too startling

Even this morning on the news, I saw Washington DC's Cherry Blossoms and how far along they are.
But no cigar... 
DC is about 10 days to peak.

Meaning if ours peak 17 days after that,
Wooster Square would peak in early May...

Stay Tuned not to miss a beat! 

In honor of David Letterman announcing his retirement, I have Bit-Coin Mined the Blossom Blog Mainframe for 10 of David's favorite things to do in the Wonderful World of Wooster Square!

So While I gather that all up, why don't we take a spin around our little slice of shangri-la sakura sweetness!

Wild start to week, Huge fun flakes!

Isn't this Baseball season?

This is a juvenile tree on Hughes Place. Hughes Place Pops a few days earlier than the park. 
Once the "floret" is visible, they are 16-21 days
until Peak Poppadge.

We have a ways to go Fine Flower Folks!
But what a ride it will be!
Hang on!
