Spring is…almost…wait for it…

There are few things as beautiful as the Tidal Basin during cherry blossom season in DC.  At the peak of the the bloom, the Basin edge looks like it is topped with rich pink and white frosting.  Walking beneath them feels magical.  There are so many other types of blooming trees all around the region at this time – I love turning a corner and seeing audacious white and pink plumes dominating a drab early-spring cityscape.  The best time to enjoy the blooms is in the early morning, with a good friend on a run through the city.  So this week we did just that, and caught the blooms before they succumbed to the unseasonable heat, followed by an unseasonable cold.  Spring has sprung?
