Gotta love the people of Japan. They gave these trees to the US in 1912 and they’ve become quite the attraction. This past week in DC has been absolutely gorgeous. Everywhere you look, something is blooming. More pictures to come soon, I just wanted to give you a little preview. The crazy winter we had here in DC has made me appreciate springtime more than ever. The warmth, the blossoms, the green, baseball (Pres. Obama is throwing out the first pitch at Nats Park in about an hour, I can hear the bustle outside as the crowds make their way in), we went to see the Nats play the Red Sox on Saturday (the final exhibition game). You can’t beat a baseball game on a sunny spring afternoon. It is supposed to be 88 here tomorrow!
