Some of my family members were going to be in D.C. this past Tuesday for the peak of the cherry blossoms. When I heard that I thought, well Portland has cherry blossoms, I should go out Tuesday and see if that's the peak. I didn't manage to get out there Tuesday, but via timberpress on twitter I saw today was close to the peak for the blossoms on the river. Yay! I've been excited about those trees blooming since I saw they lined the river on our apartment hunting trip. Anyway, I had to get over there for pictures today & will probably go back over the weekend. It even ended up being a perfectly clear, warm & sunny afternoon. I've typed enough. This post really needs to be about the pictures of the gorgeous cherry blossoms!
