Just a few of the buds and blossoms around D.C. this week…
Just a few pictures of the spring blossoms in Central Park…and smell-o-vision would be really nice with this post!
“No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.”
“You’re only here for a short visit. Don’t hurry, don’t worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.”
I’m in Washington, D.C. on tour this week with the New York City Ballet at Kennedy Center. Although the weather was gorgeous the day we arrived, it’s turned cloudy and cold ever since…which is not so bad when you have to be indoors rehearsing, but puts a definite damper on sightseeing! After hibernating in the hotel room this morning, I finally got up the courage to pile on some layers and go for a brisk walk. And I was so glad I did. The grey skies were the perfect foil for the vibrant blossoms that are bursting forth on many of the trees. There was a softness to the statues… And columns. Historic hotels looked majestic… And the crisp air was delicately perfumed. Just a tad romantic? You bet!
Another 2 illustrations for the 2015 Joana Miranda Studio Calendar have fallen into place, and here is a sneak peak at portions of each…
After a long, hard winter, who doesn’t need some flowers?!
Central Park is fabulous year round, but perhaps it’s even a little more magical in the spring. Here is a collection of spring photos taken in the park in April 2012.
