Yay! March! Basketball throws some 'bows and shoves football off the tv court, Mom celebrates her birthday, and hints of crummy old winter taking its much anticipated leave are in the air. The best thing about March is that pretty soon, the city will dress itself in a beautiful, fantastic gown of delicate, dizzying, darling cherry blossoms. Spring should be shouting its official arrival in a few weeks as the Yoshino cherry trees explode into puffs of white and pale pink blossoms. The shivering branches shower the cars and pedestrians beneath them with gorgeous blooms that dreamily float along the gentle breezes as they please. Domo arigato, Japan!
