It happens every year, like clockwork – the trees around the Tidal Basin in Washington, D.C. erupt in a haze of pink. Petals pop brightly against the brown-gray bark and weigh heavy on the limbs that were bare for so long. When the wind blows, soft pink flowers float through the sky, coating the surface of water, grass, and the sidewalks underfoot, crowded with visitors who stroll along beneath the branches, happy at Mother Nature’s acknowledgement that winter is over. (Perhaps “happy” isn’t strong a strong enough word!)
