Cherry blossoms


I passed through New York the last week in April. No matter what the weather is like -- and it changed every five minutes -- these cherry blossoms come out at that time of year. If you blink, you miss them. Their season goes by faster than the jacarandas in Mexico City. (I have blogged about the jacarandas -- on more than one occasion.)

Still, when their petals fall to the ground, they leave the same "magic carpet" effect as the jacarandas.


My friend Jessica Hagedorn has a new book out, a novel called Toxicology. For more information, click here.
