Cherry Blossom 2014

“When spring came, even the false spring, there were no problems except where to be happiest. The only thing that could spoil a day was people and if you could keep from making engagements, each day had no limits. People were always the limiters of happiness except for the very few that were as good as spring itself.” 
A time of the year when I feel joyous and energized by looking at the Cherry blossoms. They don't last long, the very next rain will wash them away. Got to visit Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial yet again and Martin Luther King memorial for the first time last weekend. It was scenic and pleasant.

My garden has a cherry plant which I had planted about 2 years ago, Does cherry Blossom refer to this plant? This spring, the plant flowered for the first time. These were small white flowers. The flowers first got transformed into red tiny mustard-sized dot-like things. These grew into small white fruits. Their colour is slowing changing into red. I hope these will become fully red sweet fruits, which we purchase from stores.
