What does Washington, D.C. and My Corner of Appalachia have in common?

Cherry tree blooms!!!!! Our Yoshino Cherry tree shows off every March. For about a week, she's the most beautiful tree in the yard. I can remember when she was just a tiny little thing and I would throw a sheet over her when a freeze threathened her pink and white blooms.

 Her name is Norma Desmond. Remember Gloria Swanson's starring role as a fading movie star in Sunset Boulevard?

Why did you name this Yoshino Cherry tree Norma Desmond, you might ask.

Because she is always 'ready for her close-up'.
