Cherry Blossoms

We tried so very hard to get to the Cherry Blossom Festival in DC today. We actually GOT to the festival and saw all of the beautiful trees in bloom around the tidal basin. Alas, it was a total zoo, and parking was impossible.
We ended up getting the heck out of there and going to a beautiful park along the Potomac River on the Virginia side. No traffic, no crowds, no trouble parking, and guess what? There were loads of cherry trees in bloom, so all was not lost!
These are photos of the gorgeous vintage barkcloth bag I bought at an artisan studio during my last trip to Florida. Those are cherry blossoms, right?
So, what did you do this weekend?
What's in bloom in your neck of the woods?

Thanks, Sassy! Sorry to hear about your cold weather...I think it might be what is headed our way this week. It was 75 here today, but we are supposed to be back in the low 50s by Tuesday :(
Doesn't bode well for a trip to Massachusetts at Easter, but we're used to hunting eggs in the snow up there!
