hello spring

Here in Washington the first full day of spring was ushered in by thunderstorms and a few pink blossoms.

Some bits for the history buffs:

* the Printing Office of Edes & Gill opens next month in Boston
* the map that put Manhattan on the grid
* and the conservation of Jefferson's Bible

Happy monday all.

P.S. Our wedding is over here!! (thank you Kate!)

Oh... beautiful wedding photos.

I noticed Philadelphia was not mentioned in the Manhattan grid article, as if it wasn't done elsewhere before. Oh well you get used to it!

Harumph. For contrast, check out Spring in Blue Hill on my blog. Marvelous wedding photos---and thanks for the nice note

Janet --

Loved seeing you over at Kate's! And thanks for sharing more branches. Just picked up some cherry blossoms at Whole Foods -- sadly they're rather bare at the moment. Ironically all the trees in my neighborhood are in full bloom.

Magnolias starting to bloom in Kansas....snowed last night. But your wedding pictures will be forever love in bloom whatever the season.

Chris ~ Everything comes back to NY, no? It is hardly the only American city "on the grid", but it is an interesting story.

DED ~ my condolences.

Courtney ~ here's hoping you have some pink blossoms by now. And thank you for your sweet comment over on Kate's.

hbd ~ oh, thank you! Spring is such a tease. Pink blossoms and white snow. I wish you more of the former and a little less of the latter!
