Well, you know.
Well, you know.
The warmest day of the year so far and this is what happens. A blend of pink buds and newly opened blossoms. In the coming days, they will surely fade and fall like snow. Captured during a stroll around the tidal basin with the setting sun.
Then this last look before saying goodnight.
Royal star magnolia. Magnolias are always the first to bloom.
From Easter weekend.
And before, all the pretty things.
Picked up these beautiful cherry blossom festival stamps today at the post office. Just a friendly reminder of what’s to come. These last weeks of winter really test you, don’t they? And so a look back on last year, with thoughts of warm breezes and an undeniable perfume everywhere you turn.
Plus, more blossoms from 2011.
Sharing similar hues.
This weather is too confusing. But then again, I’m not complaining.
Happy, almost, spring.
Today I wore shorts. And hung out in the warm sunshine. Is it really October? I don’t think so. There are flowers blooming and bugs flying about like it’s the middle of July. At least all these spiders feel a little more seasonally appropriate.
The parks of London are just one of those things you have to see for yourself. (Central Park what?!) I wish I could see them transform through every season, but when I was visiting it was about this time of year and there were daffodils everywhere. Actually, they were all over the city. Because London’s spring weather can be cold and dreary, I like to think that the daffodils were planted as a way to cheer everyone up.
Happy little golden faces smiling up at you as you walk by.
