Oooh, a fotopost!!

It’s cherry blossom time in DC again, or at least the tail end of it. As the spring breezes blow through the city, they fall from the trees and start drifting like snow. To wit, at lunchtime today:

Splendor in the grass by the Capitol building, which is about three blocks from my office:

Drifting blossoms:

my fave, right down in the grass:

In case anybody was curious, I took a picture of one kind of cherry tree’s label. I love the notation in the lower left of the placard – the federal government evidently believes that all your base AND your  trees are belong to us:

The dome itself, in case you wanted to feel all Patriotic. Or something.

Then there was this little guy, who was meandering around the fountain park that leads up to the Capitol from the direction of Union Station, more or less – I love his curly-q tail feathers!:

Now THIS says Washington to me – Oh! Is somebody watching? With CAMERAS? Quick, stick your head under something and pretend you can’t see! Maybe if we ignore them, they’ll go away and we can go back to what we were doing before!

Knitting pics tomorrow – hopefully this will tide you over. 🙂
