Today's weather forecast calls for a high of 60° F (15° C) and sunset is at 7:31 p.m. EDT, so the plan for the evening is an after work drive-by cherry blossom viewing in Branch Brook Park. Since every sock deserves an adventure, I'm taking my second round Sock Madness sock, Tokena by Tricia Weatherston.
I'm hoping the combination of rain earlier this week, brief snow yesterday, and warmth today will make the flowers pop this evening. I've never seen the phenomenon myself, but under the right conditions cherry blossoms can go from swollen bud to blown flower in under two hours. Only a handful of plants can move that fast (unquestionably faster than I'm currently knitting).
Branch Brook Park aka Cherryblossomland is well-served by NJ Transit trains, buses, and light rail, and is handicapped accessible. If you can't make it in person, there's the new Cherryblossomland cam.
