spring blooms in january

the strangest thing happened yesterday.
I was on my way to grab a crepe and an orange juice from Vivace in NW Portland
as I crossed the street a strong breeze picked up and my face was filled with debris...
but it wasn't debris, it was cherry blossom petals....
in January. 
later that day, a very sweet new friend of mine came round for dinner and brought be a gorgeous bouquet of pink tulips. 
springs favorite warning sign...but it is January.
As eager as I am for spring, it seems a bit worrisome that we are experiencing spring-like symptoms in the middle of the winter.
