How Does Your Garden Grow? (UPDATED)

April 1, 2011

Happy Friday, my little April Fools!

It seems that spring has finally started the glacially slow springing process, and in DC that only means one thing: cherry blossoms! Well, OK, cherry blossoms that any true Washingtonian avoids like the plague on account of all the tourists, but you get the idea. Pretty, pretty flowers busting out all over! Today, we were lucky enough to spend some time in the lovely garden of our intrepid leader, watching the little buds come into bloom. True, there weren’t any cherry blossoms (though, knowing our intrepid leader, she could probably get them if she wanted them!), but there was more than enough vernal loveliness to get a nice Spring Buzz going. Here are a few pics:

Baby tulip's first spring!


Spring is in the buildings!

What about you, guys? Any good gardening tips? What are you most excited to do this spring? Let us know in the comments!

See you next time! Have a fun weekend!!!
