yarn bomb

On my way to Georgetown last Saturday
I came across this wonderful installation,
along Wilson Boulevard in Rosslyn. 
Not to miss if you're in town this spring.

About 130 community volunteer knitters and crocheters
from the Washington, DC area met at Artisphere 
for five months on Wednesday nights
to create individual pieces for this yarn bomb. 
The installation includes more than 1,000 stitched
geometric shapes and native Virginia flora.

bloomin' cherry blossoms

fave flowers?

{In 1912, an incredible gift of 3,000 cherry blossom trees
was bestowed on Washington, DC by Tokyo, Japan. 
Rooted strongly and surviving outside elements,
the trees have withstood the test of time}

Here in full bloom!

cherry blossoms 2013 {Washington, DC}

the Cherry Blossoms in
Washington reached their peak bloom
last Wednesday, so I grabbed my camera
and spent the whole morning
walking around the Tidal Basin
enjoying this beautiful scenery that only
happens once a year.
The weather was perfect too!!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!!!!

we were not expecting it
but it snowed hard
while we were in the mountains

the truth is... 
it made our trip complete!
we all loved it,
including our dog Russell
