Spent a beautiful morning wondering around the Smithsonian Gardens behind the castle. Such a beautiful place with not many people around.

Pro tip: another great place to catch the cherry blossoms when they bloom.

For now, they have these amazing magnolias trees. It was like flower heaven.

You know it’s spring when you start seeing these bloom. If cherry blossoms are the official flowers of spring in the DC area, then I think magnolias are the second runner up. They’re everywhere and they’re so big and beautiful. I’ve even heard a few tourists ask if these were cherry blossoms. No… but they’re just as beautiful 🙂

So I was looking at my instagram and noticed that a lot of my recent pictures have been very blue. Not that theres anything wrong with blue. Blue is my favorite color but I felt like I needed more variety. I went digging through my spring images and this is what I came up with! Haha. Not very colorful but I love the line. The more I look at it the more I see different shapes and figures. At one point of processing I think I crossed my eyes so much that I kinda saw a woman standing there. Do you see it or am I going crazy staring at the computer screen?

I finally broke free!!! I got out of the house but everything after that was a little crazy. I picked up my friend, Sue and we headed to DC. All smooth sailing until we had to find a parking spot. All my usual parking spots were still covered in snow. Then it was walking through all the snow. I started breaking a sweat by the time we got to the Monument. At one point Sue and I had to walk one-behind-another in order to keep from falling. But I fell. Sue turned around and saw me all in the snow. She fell from laughing at me so hard. It was hilarious. Then I got stuck in my driveway 3 different ways. No more driving for me until all the snow melts. Ill be a metro rider from now on.
