spring awakening

it's been a long winter of gray days, salty streets, and frozen earth. But here, finally, is Spring!

a sea of daffodils on 16th

flowering plum on V Street

the year-round tulips of U Street

Cherry blossoms at the corner of U and MLK

the MLK snowballs: Bradford Pears in full bloom

forsythia on Pleasant Street

the bud before the bloom...

a new street tree, its leaves yawning and stretching to life

even the weeds (and the bugs) are waking up

more cherry blossoms, just below Cedar Hill

Thanks to all who have beautified the neighborhood with flowers, trees, and dirty fingernails. It's what keeps us coming back.
