Hello everyone from freezing but-with-tulips-blooming Delaware! This morning we even had snow falling on our weeping cherry blossoms here (Above)! Strange weather here in the Northeast USA but we're hoping it will warm by next weekend for the Cherry Blossom Festivals in Washington DC and Philadelphia. This blog post has news about a site sale and venue discounts, plus our office schedule for the week of April 11th:
