All I could want

Leaving Dixfield on Thursday afternoon, there was at least two feet of snow on the ground. A little less than two hours later at the airport in Portland, there was almost no snow.

A little less than two hours after that, my plane landed in DC and there were flowers growing.


There were robins and green grass.



And there a daughter climbing a cherry tree in the shadow of the Washington Monument.

George Washington cut down that Cherry tree many many years ago. Just look at it today. They built a monument to mark the spot. Looks like you are having a great time.

It must feel like the tropics to you. Have a fun time with those cherry trees and your family.

And that daughter in the tree looks like she is doing well, which is always thrilling to see.

I hope you have a great time.
"And there a daughter climbing a cherry tree"- I thought this, and the photo, were just lovely.
I came back and because you've been busy blogging I've got so much good stuff to read :)

The Texican beat me to the punch-I was thinking along the same lines. A daughter that likes to climb trees is a sure sign that you have taught her well.

The cherry trees and monument--what a perfect pairing.
It must be a nice treat for you--warm southern weather until Maine catches up!
