A VERY quick update ... I will post fuller entry this weekend. Please see my Arcturus blog for a weather update on the torrential rains / thunderstorms that swept across the D.C. area yesterday this very wet year. Today was a sunny, very warm, humid day, and it's going to get VERY hot (upper 90sF) this weekend. Boo
SOUR CHERRIES! See below.
I took off from work today -- boo again -- because I was genuinely sick this morning. I hope my boss isn't too mad at me. I emailed her, of course and she just wrote back, "rest and get better."
But I still took a long walk this afternoon from Friendship Heights to Spring Valley with its tremendously wealthy homes (that I've taken pictures of and featured on my Arcturus blog in the past) to Battery Kemble park (I love saying "Battery Kemble") just off Chain Bridge and Loughboro Roads -- WHERE I FOUND MY SOUR CHERRY TREE AND IT WAS JUST REACHING FRUITION! YAY! -- to Glover Park and through Georgetown and back to Dupont Circle. I took lots of pictures on my walk, which I will post this weekend.
Regulus pays homage to this wonderful sour cherry tree.
A leaf from the sour cherry tree. Tree said I could take it.
Gerry and I had a nice Thai dinner in Arlington tonight. But I need to go to bed right now so I'll write more about my walk and dinner today over the weekend.
