spring flowers

It's been a weird few months weather-wise with temperatures see-sawing warm and cold regardless of the season.  The bluebells came 
a little early this year and a few weeks ago, I hiked the Potomac Heritage Trail while they were in full bloom. 

 Went back the next weekend at the crack of dawn for some of that magical early photographer's light.  Bluebells already on their way out but wild blue phlox and red trillium were out.

 And violets and mayapples too.

Reminiscing about my trip to the grand canyon and sedona six years ago that I took to mark one year after my breast cancer diagnosis.  Today is seven.

St. Pete escape

Last month, an escape from the cold and from everything to St. Petersburg, Florida.  I visited with my cousin and her son, walked and photographed the beach for sunrise and for sunset, and enjoyed the Dali museum and its Frida Kahlo exhibit.  The escape was much needed, much appreciated, and I already need another one!

Macro Meander at the Arboretum

A very relaxing stroll this afternoon at the national arboretum with friends.  Played with my macro (close-up) lens without a tripod - a little tricky for focusing but lots of sunshine to help with the exposures.  It was blissfully not in the 90s!

Escape from Summer

Current temperature in downtown Washington - 93 degrees, feels like 102, according to  Or 97 degrees per weather underground.  HATING IT.   So, pulling from the archives, celebrating December 2009 snowfall in Becket, MA, in the Berkshires.
