Although the cherry blossoms are in full bloom just a few miles down the road from me in DC, this crazy, cold weather seems to have slowed things down a bit in my neck of the woods. There are signs of spring, only subtle ones.
The cherry blossoms are sparse, but there are other trees beginning to bloom.
Even without the grand spectacle of the cherry blossoms, it makes me happy just to see the new leaves forming. Mother Nature may be slow, but she will not be stopped.
