a walk in georgetown


Sunday was sunny and mild ~ and just perfect for a long walk into Georgetown. It was like emerging from hibernation: watching people venturing out into the sun, peeling off heavy coats, and sipping lattes at outdoor cafés. Dare I hope, a sign of things to come?

Saturday was a jumble of church rummage sales and used book stores, which yielded (among other things) a book on old silver for the gentleman, and two more volumes of John Burroughs for the lady. The latter including, most appropriately, a copy of Signs and Seasons (1886).

No kidding! It did seem like emerging from hibernation this weekend.

Walking around Georgetown is one of my favorite spring activities...and I agree - love the energy on the street these past two days.

Please, dare to hope! Spring is coming not a moment too soon.

Saw daffodils blooming in Maymont garden on Sunday. Think spring!

I guess that's why they call it spring fever! Enjoy it while it lasts.

Daffodils, JBR! We don't have anything like that up here yet. And at Maymont no less. Beautiful!
