We had so many chuckles yesterday — with Senator Lee and his GND posters, not to mention all the hilarious responses — but this tweet humorously reminded us to look up, and stop and see the cherry trees. Nothing means spring in DC like these delicate pink flowers breaking out everywhere.  So, by all means — wake the kids and call the neighbors because the peduncles are elongated, Friends of the Planet!  This time of year, for me (Monica) means it’s time to take an annual picture of my (now grown) kids with DC’s most famous flowering trees — a ritual that has gone on for nearly 30 blossom seasons now.  If only I had known to call it “peduncle elongation” time!  #BloomWatch #StageFour #TwoMoreToGo #snicker
