No Fooling! :)

Today's April Fool's Day - but no one was fooled when they walked among the Cherry Blossoms in D.C. - the blossoms were absolutely beautiful! :) There's something about seeing the blossoms - - they're so white, so delicate, so beautiful against a bright blue sky... I just wish they lasted longer... It's like being in Heaven for a short while. There are two great times to be in D.C. - the Spring and Autumn. :) Winter and Summer can be somewhat long and difficult - - too cold and too hot. But in the Spring and Autumn, you can enjoy long walks outside without being uncomfortable, and your eyes feast on the beauty of nature. I love biking to work during the Cherry Blossom time, because even though there are lots of tourists milling about, I never have to worry about finding a place to park. I can pull up anywhere and lean my bike against a tree or pole. I can take my time rolling along, not having to deal with someone right behind me who wants me to go. I can stop as many times as I want, whenever I see a photo I want to take. It just makes it so more enjoyable and easy. :)
