OLYMPIA -- The cherry blossoms are out on the trees near the Capitol Building along the appropriately named Cherry Lane.

These are the Kwansan cherry trees, which bloom a few weeks later than the Yoshino cherry trees, Steve Valandra of the Department of General Administration said.

So it's a good time to stop and smell the flowers. Maybe that's why so little has been happening in the Legislature in recent days.
