cherry blossom number one

cherry blossom number one (2011)

So it's time for our annual pilgrimage to the corner of NW 19th & Lovejoy, home to a handful of cherry trees that bloom absurdly early year after year. There was exactly one cherry blossom this time (that I noticed), so I'm going to go ahead and declare it the first one of the year.

I mean, it's not even February yet, and I haven't seen any bees flying around, so I'm not sure it makes any logical sense at all to bloom right now. But it's exactly the right time of year for a little act of reckless optimism.
