Philly’s Cherry Blossom Bust

Have you ever made plans and tried to see something countless times and somehow it never works out? 

For whatever reason, when it comes to cherry blossoms that is us. 

Why do they hate me so?

This past weekend we hopped in the car, drove 90 minutes and ended up at the Horticulture Center in Fairmount Park in Philadelphia. Unfortunately for us and a few thousand other people, the blossoms have yet to bloom this season.
