On Interstate 81 down through New York State and Pennsylvania everything seemed to get greener and warmer. By the time we reached Maryland we were greeted with broad golden swathes of forsythia and carpets of gilded daffodils. Washington welcomed us with dogwood and cherry blossom in glorious profusion. No, we weren't in DC to consult with Barack or Hillary, and this time we even gave most of the museums a miss. We spent the week revelling in just being able to wander the parks and gardens in our shirtsleeves, soaking up the warmth and sunshine, and enjoying the final week of the National Cherry Blossom Festival. Snowy Ottawa seemed a million miles away
We think it's enough to let the photos tell the story of springtime in Washington.
[Late breaking news on the health front: The latest couple of rounds of chemo have brought the wbc count down to 19.9! A meeting with the Bone Marrow Transplant Team is being scheduled for sometime in late May. Wish us luck!]
