After checking in on my listing at the Forest at South Run today I decided to make a quick stop at Burke Lake Park. If you follow my blog it's one of my favorite spots when there is free time in my schedule to walk the 4.7 mile trail or a quck out and back.
Today I was stopped in my tracks when I realized that the Cherry Trees in the park were almost in full bloom.. It's FEBRUARY folks. Normally in Northern Virgina at this time of year we are still bundled up in our down jackets or shoveling snow.
This year the National Cherry Blossom Festival is scheduled for March 20 – April 27, 2012. Hope the blooms on the trees at the Tidal Basin don't reach full bloom weeks before then.
