cherry blossom hunting….

Like I was saying yesterday:  we went to Rochester to visit some cherry blossoms.  Rochester is less than 2 hours north of here, BUT it is on Lake Ontario which a) makes it a lot snowier than here (which says A LOT) and b) it is warmer than here.  The lake moderates things a tiny bit.  So whereas we don't have many cherry trees, there are many around Lake Ontario.  It is also true that they are further into spring than us.  We have hardly any flowers yet, and they have a zillion…they call Rochester the Flower City! (it was the Flour City once upon a time…they rebranded ;).

Anyway, if it was that pretty, YOU would go there too…these pics taken around the Olmstead designed Highland Park.
