All of a Sudden it’s Spring!

When we moved here two years ago we arrived in DC to snow, rain, and cold. It wasn’t until the middle of April that the cherry trees blossomed. Last year was pretty much the same. This year, however, spring took us by surprise; starting while we were in Asheville with the magnolias, cherry-blossom season transformed DC into a vision in white and pink, and the glades around the Tidal Basin became a fairy-land once more.

Because of the colder weather at this time of year, though, the blooming period is shorter, and the blossom seems more ephemeral than ever. But the rest of the DC flora is catching up to Spring now, and DC is on the way to turning a vibrant green again.

It’s official. Spring is here.
