Cherry Blossoms - "Stand with Japan Walk"

As you look around Ingleside Plantation Nurseries the cherry trees are blooming. A gorgeous contrast of pink and white are seen as you drive around. Since we are seeing such beauty we thought about the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, DC. Please take a moment and read about the "Stand with Japan Walk".

The National Cherry Blossom Festival begins this weekend in Washington, D.C., and organizers are asking people to participate tonight in a walk around the Tidal Basin where the cherry blossoms have been blooming since they arrived as a gift from Japan in 1912.
Cherry Blossom FestivalIt is being called "Stand with Japan Walk," and it is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. (Thursday night) as a show of unity with those suffering from the earthquake and tsunami.
