Hi! I'd seen a post on the blossoms in DC, but not NYC, thanks for posting them. I'm also stopping by to say hello and that I'm looking forward to meeting you at Spring Fling!

Like Monica, I stopped by to say hello, and I'm looking forward to meeting you in a few weeks in Chicago!

I went last weekend - it was beautiful although still well before peak. I took about a zillion pictures, here are my two favorites!

I'd really gone to see Daffodil Hill. I missed it last year & I couldn't believe it when I realized it was over!
