One of the things on my bucket list is to attend the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C. and then hop on a plane and enjoy a multitude of Cherry Blossom Festivals in Japan.

I think these little flowers are so pretty and when in full bloom the trees are just breathtaking.  Sadly, this is not my year to check this one off the list, however, I get to dream a bit about it by browsing through National Geographics Cherry Blossom Photos – found here.  The best part, it gives you a link to turn them into desktop wallpaper….so even though I can’t be there…I can dream.

Isn’t this little guy so cute!
