April showers bring May flowers

Every year when spring comes around, I anxiously wait for one of my favorite trees/flowers to bloom: The Cherry Blossom Tree. While reading some articles, I came upon some interesting facts about the Cherry Blossom Trees. They were first given to the USA by the Japanese in the early 1900's to celebrate the nations' then growing friendship and ever since then all over the US, Cherry Blossom Festivals are held to celebrate these gorgeous trees.
Take a look at how lovely they look in NYC's Central Park- Spring is finally here!

These are such gorgeous photos! I love Cherry Blossoms but sadly don't have enough of them in my life. This helps though.
