A big thank you to those who have submitted your photos of this year's cherry blossoms to share. It has been a very pretty bloom this year, and you've all captured it wonderfully in your photos.
There are a lot of photos sent in, and even after making some selections there are too many for a single post. So I'm breaking it up into a few installments. This is part 2–you can see part 1 here.
Thanks again to all who have sent in their photos!
Local Charity Spotlight
Looking to give back? Here's one of the local charities (or with local links) that is well worth contributing to.
World Central Kitchen
World Central Kitchen goes to the frontlines of humanitarian, climate, and community crises to provide meals and build the necessary systems and infrastructure to feed those in need.
World Central Kitchen was founded by celebrity chef José Andrés, a long-time area resident who has some wonderful restaurants in the area among his growing portfolio (Oyamel, Zaytinya, and Jaleo are personal favorites).
You can donate directly on their website and learn more about their mission and impact.
