Happy Earth Day Everyone!

In honor of Earth Day I have posted my Spring button fairy created for the Spring Button Fairy swap on swap-bot.

The cherry blossoms in my area inspired this little spring button fairy; her name is Sakura (Japanese word for Cherry Blossom).

I live 30 minutes outside of Washington DC, and during this period of spring it is our cherry blossom season. We celebrate these beautiful trees with the National Cherry Blossom Festival.

People come from all over to enjoy this beautiful sight every spring! If you’ve never been to DC for the Cherry Blossom Festival it is definitely something to see…just like a live postcard!

The National Cherry Blossom Festival annually commemorates the 1912 gift of 3,000 cherry trees from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo to the city of Washington!

Though Washington DC attracts the tourists and locals alike for this pink frilly fantastical event, you will find Cherry blossoms through out the surrounding suburbs as well.

Whole neighborhoods graced with pink magical ceilings of beautiful blossoms, on windy days it can look like it’s snowing …and it is…just not snow…it snows Cherry Blossom petals!

Happy Earth Day Everyone!
