Here's hoping that my perenially-behind-the-curve yoshino still brings it, this year.

Japanese cherry trees. Nipped. Nice.

Ya know, I half expected it to be due to Trump claiming something like "LOL week Japany trees have no place in US capatal. Rip them up!" or similar...

No blossoms this year? Say it ain't so!

Cherries are for non-alcoholic drinks, farkers don't care.

I planted a cheery tree two years ago in my front yard.  Last year for their first blossoms was forecast for a few days of heavy rain which would have ruined them.  Rigged up a patio umbrella above the tree to protect the blossoms.

That was a fun show to bad no one watched it so it never had a chance for another season. Mary Elizabeth winstead is gorgeous tho.

I don't give a flying fig.

Wait another damned year.
Focus on other things.
There are other plants blooming.
And so on...

 You are now on my list of people to punch in the dick. All of these years I've been waking up, brushing my teeth, going to work and existing with no memory of that show. You have altered this peace. Worse than even the most vile earworm (fish heads fish heads roly-poly fish heads). Sir, you have actively disrupted my sanity. Gird your loins.

 I take it you've never ordered an old-fashioned, or manhattan. Both have cherries, but are sufficiently masculine.

I think she's got a role on the new season of Fargo.

A LOT of people go to DC to see them, so the city could be out a lot of tourist money.

Just keep scheduling protest marches in DC. That will make up for lost blossom tourists.

Well, they showed pictures of unopened blossoms covered in ice. It this is the general case, the trees will bloom normally, since the ice insulates them. Peach farmers spray their orchards with water to protect the buds when a freeze is expected.

Not so lucky here. My Yashino has already started to bloom and it's 21 deg. outside and expected to be just as cold tonight. My hydrangeas are also zapped; their new leaves are frozen. Grrrrrr. This is happening more and more.

I'm trying REALLY hard not to read some mystical significance that the cherry blossoms failed in the first
year of the Trump presidency.

Cherry trees gifted to the US from Japan are feeling a bit nippy.

Nobody gives a fark.  You know what makes me mad?  When farking Giant and Safeway don't live up to their promises.  They advertise in their "weekly circular" that they're going to one thing, then you go to the store and they are not doing it!  You grab a minimum wage worker by the neck to explain the discrepancy and they just tremble in fear.  Who the fark do I have to talk to about getting $4.00 off my farking Pompeian extra virgin olive oil???

The people who come to DC for the cherry blossoms and related events aren't going to scrap their long-planned vacations because of this.

Unlike the blossoms, the tourons will be out in force, like they always are.
