Flowers Make Me Smile

This afternoon we walked over to the United States Botanic Garden. I was feeling a little grumpy and thought seeing some pretty flowers might help to cheer me up. Guess what....it worked! We spent some time in the Conservatory, the National Garden, and Bartholdi Park. Most of the flowers are in full bloom and looked gorgeous on this perfect spring day. Here are a few of my favorite shots!

Happy Spring! Hopefully the flowers bring a smile to your face as well!

  12. I LOVE the name of your blog! I'm a born and raised Jersey girl living in Virginia and I can TOTALLY relate.

    I'm hoping to get to D.C. some, though, while we're here, so I might have to frequent your blog more often! Have a great day!
