ben is just so cute smelling the blossoms
i really look forward to the dc blossoms each spring. and so do a billion tourists.
i wasn't really about to brave the tidal basin crowds this year so ben and i visited the national arboretum...
one of my favorite -in dc- getaways. so gorgeous and so under appreciated because so many people don't go out of their way to see it.
and i really prefer the magnolias. i think they might be my favorite tree flower ever.
i felt a lot of happiness walking around the trees with ben... knowing that maybe spring is finally here.
