Blossoms







In Washington, D.C. for a few days on business. Luckily enough, my trip coincided with a certain seasonal festival they celebrate down here. Guess which one.

Beautiful pictures, nice Blog, this reminds me of the year I was in Chantilly, near Washington DC for the last snow for two months and got to see the first blossoms. The smells and sights are marvelous around there this time of year.

Thanks for sharing.

Alas, I am at the end of your blog! I found you on Blogs Of Note and started at the very beginning after reading a few current posts. I have really enjoyed myself each morning beginning my day with coffee and your blog. So relaxing. Some of the best time I have spent at work! Your blog is outstanding, so is your family and pictures. Thank you so much for posting and sharing your life!

I used to live in MD and all along the street these were planted. It was like pink snow had fallen. One year both kinds bloomed at once all dark and light pink. :)

Congratz on the "BON", I am one too, welcome to the big family :)

Send some cherry blossom wishes our way would you? We are in Alaska and the snow is still melting while releasing piles of trash flown from people/vehicles/trash cans throughout the winter.... enough on the complaining.. our summers are spectacular - with almost 24 hours of sunlight how could they not be? Thank you for the beautiful images and sweet stories. (By the way my husband despises Apple as he is a computer tech. I almost feel like I am cheating on him reading your blog with the little tidbits about how wonderful Apple products are!)

Beautiful eye candy on your blog!! You take wonderful photos! I saw you on the list of blogs and I just love your title, reading further, I love your blog! I was wondering if you would mind sharing what type of camera you use? and lens you favor? Thank you!

I wish I had something more elaborate to report, some slick new SLR with a primo lens, but the photos on this blog were taken with a Canon PowerShot SD750, one of the cameras in their Digital ELPH series. It's very small and portable, which is important because if it weren't I wouldn't have it with me very often and would not have taken many of these shots.

I lived in Alexandria, Va with my brother in the summer 82 & 83. Every weekend I rode my bike into DC. It was quite and experience for a country boy who never left his home state of Michigan, except for the few times I traveled south to go to Canada to visit my other brother who lived in Winsor, Ont.

It's nice to see those lovely blooms. For us living in countries where there is no spring and no cherry blossoms, all we could do is appreciate these things through pictures.

Yes I must admit I too noticed your blossoms. Here in Portugal we have a very similar landscape at the moment, when the wind blow it almost looks like snow, especially the almond blossom.
