In Bloom: DC's Cherry Blossoms

I had very good intentions of posting on Thursday night when I got into Boston but basketball and a bowl of ice cream distracted me.  I meant to post on Friday but shopping and Hunger Games got in the way.  Now that I'm back I have no excuse except that I'm tired and short on words. So while I hit the hay, look at the beautiful cherry blossom pictures I promised you last week.  These were taken during lunch on Thursday when the trees were still in peak bloom.  I feel so lucky to work just down the street from this beautiful area.

I hope these start your week off on the right foot!
