    Looks like we are seeing 5% less growth this year.

    So these blossoms only work for two weeks a year? Sound like Congress.

    You made me come all the way from Nebraska to see something in Washington that isnt doing what is expected? I could have seen that on C-SPAN

    Wow someone should try and clean that algae out of the water.

    I can’t believe the Republicans forced sequester cuts on the cherry blossoms too!

    Too bad we can’t tax cherry blossoms. Wait a sec…

    No wonder Washington chopped down a cherry tree.

    Talk about ‘Springing into action’.

  • S. Crim

    I should have listened to all those people back home who told us not to go to Washington for our vacation because it was full of flakes!

  • Nick

    This is nice, but until Congress gets their act together, I fear it’s all just bloom and gloom

  • Guest

    It’s too bad we don’t still have earmarks….I would try to re-create this back home!

  • disqus_zaCJJeFItp

    Can’t complain. They’re not nearly as late as this year’s budget–or is that LAST year’s budget?

  • disqus_zaCJJeFItp

    So much for the anti-littering laws!

  • disqus_zaCJJeFItp

    The weirdest thing is that we’re alone. Everyone else gave up and went home!

    This snowstorm of petal overproduction is going to really skew the Chained Cherry Blossom Price Index.
