You're all worth it!
I am suffering from the worst allergies of all 32 years of my life. It started a week or so ago, and I figured the sneezing was kind of funny, but it quickly progressed to major congestion, headache, and a sinus infection. Well, $100 later, loaded up with Zyrtec, Nasonex, and Z-pak, I'm on the road to recovery... right?!?
So this morning to celebrate my road to recovery, I overcame my shortness of breath (yes, I run out of breath just by standing up and talking! I feel so old!), and my roommate and I went to see cherry blossoms! The jewels of Washington DC--and well worth the price. It was incredible... so many white ways of delight. We wandered along Haynes Point, then parked and walked along the Tidewater Basin. It was kind of chilly-but incredible. I guess only 20% of the blossoms are out right now, which means I must go again later this week. My favorites were the weeping white blossoms, but all of them were incredible. I even told the blossoms, with my plugged up nose, "You're all worth it!"
I'm including pictures of the great flowers in front of our house... and you'll see where the squirrels have wreaked their havoc on my tulips. If you know ANYTHING about how to stop squirrels, please, share!
