a fool for petals

blossoms via polaroid (via mrs. french)

Before moving to D.C. I heard all about the cherry blossoms.

I am a fool for flowers, generally, but there is really something special about these trees. So fluffy and gorgeous, petals floating down like snowflakes. I could sit under them for hours.

Right about now they are *peaking* and I can't wait to take our pups down to the tidal basin for a proper viewing.

That is if this rain would ever end.

Spring is delicious, if misty.
