The cherry trees donated by the Japanese Association of Northeast Ohio (JANO) are in full bloom. This year is the 100th Anniversary of the gift of cherry trees to the United States from Japan for the mall in Washington D.C. This year the blooming is early. I tweeted last night that I wished one of the news organizations would broadcast something. Little did I know when I made that tweet that Newsnet5 already had!
Yesterday about 15 of us had an impromptu "hanami" which was a lot of fun. Check out the pictures below.
If you have a chance, you'll want to stop by today since I think the inbound rain and storms will knock all the blossoms off the trees.
