Today is the 'Earth Day', when I strolled along the garden, a little girl stopped me for writing any wishes or pledges in a tiny tag then stick on the tree.
What will be your wish for our beloved earth?
The garden is so pretty today. It is so green, spring green, so bright, so new and so refreshing. Flowers are blooming everywhere. Azalea is in line to bloom a few days from now.
Last picture, the same view as I took last year. The only different is my mom was sitting on that bench.

So cold and windy today.
I went out to shoot (photos of) some flowers but gave up.
Somebody is let go today.
It happens so many times in my life (here)
and I still not get used to the way it is (here).
So cold and windy,
both outside and inside.

Every year, after cherry blossom has gone, it is Liset time.
The sun shines into my bedroom in the morning. In Spring, I have less and less light because leaves and flowers grow bigger and bigger.
This morning, Liset is in full bloom and I wake up in the pink light.
It is how the flowers say Good Morning to me. Is that lovely?

My plan today is to visit Washington DC. It's cherry blossom time!
It is not a good idea at all to drive to DC today, traffic will be bad because the city is everyone's destination. So we decided to start our trip early and take subway instead.
We starts our trip at 9.00am. At Shady Grove station, we were full of surprise because the parking lot was packed and hundreds of people were at the platform. I even met my coworker at Metro Center station when we caught the next train to Smithsonian.
It was chilly and overcast, we hoped that once we are in DC, the weather would warm up and the sky would look nicer. But it did not, it was cold and cloudy. However, at the end of the day it was much warmer and finally the sun came out.
Lot and lot of people everywhere, it is so crowd but that the way it is every year.
Half of the walkway around Tidal Basin is flooded, are cherry trees flood resistant? Cherry trees which are closed to the basin are old, have beautiful branches. So, I am kind of worry about next year.
Cherry blossoms have been bloomed since last week. Now all the flowers are so pinkish, not as white as I normally see them every year.
We cannot walk around the basin this year. The goodthings are less crowd because people are scatter on the high ground and on the road. Second thing is we get to have the picture of the shadow of cherry tree in the water which is very nice!!!
and create the best time of the year.

I went to Brookside Gardens yesterday after work. The garden is at its peak! Flowers are everywhere.
It was a perfect day, I strolled along the garden until the sun set.
Daffodils are blooming everywhere but this one blooms alone.
I feel like Winter still lingers on here, at least under this big old tree.
