Cherry Blossoms in DC

i was fortunate enough to get to the tidal basin on friday before the weekend drizzle thinned all the cherry trees out. the flowers were gorgeous and the people watching, fun!
the weather has shifted this week and while the sun is out and the sky is blue, the air is chilly and cold.

if you are in dc, make sure to catch a glimpse of the trees before all the blooms are gone!

glorious weather: spring is here!

 my father said he couldn't talk long tonight because it was 85 degrees and they were out with the dog. they live in Michigan-it is March and it is 85 degrees in Michigan. it seems most of the states are experiencing strange weather patterns and by strange- i mean wonderfully warm.

 in DC it means spring has officially sprung. The cherry blossoms are out several weeks early which is fun for the locals, but bad for the tourists.

 i just hope they last over the weekend- i would love to get out to the tidal basin this year while they are still kicking.

 St. Patrick's Day was spent in the company of friends. after a day of celebration we headed to Perrys in Adams Morgan for an excellent meal on what i believe to be one of the prettiest roof tops in dc. if you get a chance- make sure to dine there this spring.

how is the weather in your part of the world? 
enjoy spring, everyone!
