Signs of Spring

I took a walk on the National Mall this morning before work and found signs of spring.  There will be much more of these to come.

The first Cherry Blossoms on the National Mall near the Hirshorn Museum

Hamamelis virginiana (Witch Hazel) growing near the Hirshorn Gallery

H. virginiana

 Daffodils in a particularly warm spot near the American History Museum.


  1. Daffodils! sweet.. Got back today from FL... just to find out that it'll be at least 3 weeks until any wild or domesticated flowers at my yard anyway...(but I'm also about 1000 ft higher than these pics..) :(
    My guess is that any good mountain flowers will be a month... let's hope for a surprise!

  2. I was in Sugar Hollow this afternoon, and happened to catch a little clump of daffodils in a clearing. It was nice to be reminded that Spring could be on its way...
