Cherry Blossom by Susan Entwistle
Cherry blossoms are a symbolic flower of the spring, a time of renewal, and the fleeting nature of life. In 19th century America, only a few people in the United States—horticulturalists, generally—knew of the Japanese flowering cherry tree. This changed in 1912 when Japan gave 3,020 cherry blossom trees to the United States as a gift. The United States viewed this offer as a warm gesture of friendship and planted the trees in Sakura Park in Manhattan and Potomac Park in Washington, D.C. Each spring brings forth the breathtaking rebirth of the Cherry Blossoms. The international symbol of friendship is celebrated to this day with the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington. Cherry blossom season in Ireland usually comes into full swing between April and May. Though sakura sometimes blooms as early as March when temperatures are mild. The flowers only bloom for a relatively short time.
