Cherry blossom season really is one of the most beautiful times of year to enjoy DC. Stella and I went for an early morning (for us!) jog down to the Tidal Basin where the most flowers bloom to take in the pink, fragrant blossoms. We had so much fun together. Each breeze showered us with tiny petals that landed lightly on Stella’s fur. She looked so pretty, and she curiously examined the petals floating in the water.
Stella was really happy to be outside on such a beautiful day, and she got a lot of compliments and pets from passing tourists. She could not contain her smile!
It was our first visit to the cherry blossoms together, so we felt inspired to take some selfies. I am confident that I looked insane. There were so many other people around with cameras, that I’m surprised nothing has appeared online yet making fun of us. Whatever…catching Stella’s kisses on camera was worth looking foolish.
I love how lush and fluffy the trees look when they are bursting with flowers. Flowering trees stud this city, but the ones lining the Tidal Basin carry the greatest impact because there are so many of them.
Stella and I also visited the MLK memorial for the first time when we were down by the Mall. The memorial is huge and very impressive. Stella’s favorite part was the waterfalls that flank the memorial, but they were just beyond her drinking distance. Instead, a park ranger helped me fill my hands in a water fountain so Stella could quench her thirst. As the morning grew later and the crowds swelled, it was time for us to head back home. Until next year, cherry blossoms!
How beautiful you look amongst the cherry blossoms. I’ll bet that great nose of yours is taking in the fragrance. Lucky dog.!!
So pretty!!! I live near a TON of cherry/almond/apricot/plum orchards and they are SO beautiful when the bloom. Stella is such a cutie!
You are so lucky! One of my life dreams is to have a fruit tree 🙂
Let’s see the selfies! She is really, really cute , BTW.
OK, that’s funny. On my computer I can see all the photos including the selfies. On iPad, can only see some of them. You’re both cute!
Thanks, Jenny! Because the pictures are in collage format, I know they didn’t come up in my subscription email, but I didn’t know about problems with the iPad. I’ll look into it.
Lovely! I haven’t been in DC for the cherry blossoms in 30 years. You both look beautiful!
You and your Girl are so sweet looking! I’m glad you rescued her, she really looks like she loves life! She deserves to be alive. Bonus, she got a great Mom….
Thanks for all the Stella pix you post-always love looking at them! Love your recipes!
