Springtime Photos In DC

Written by stuestler on May 5th, 2009

Spring is a great time of year. I’m not a big fan of winter’s short days, cold weather and gray-brown scenery, and the explosion of color and life that comes in the spring rejuvenates the soul.  Of course, it does come along with the infamous Mid-Atlantic explosion of pollen – good grief, what a season this one is turning into!

It’s spring again, and also time for a quarterly project I‘ve been doing for 23 years with one long-time client.





Sneezin’ and wheezin’ aside, it always amazes me how the landscape can go from a barren, desolate winterscape to a lush, green jungle-like blanket in just a month. In fact I just drove up along Canal Rd., coming out of DC along the Potomac, and the grass along side the road that hasn’t been cut yet is wheat-field high and has seed heads! In early May!


Since this particular client is a major real estate firm, and the project is a magazine featuring their high-end properties, the change is especially welcome. Everyplace looks better in a full dress of azaleas, dogwoods and greening trees.


Now if we could just get this week of rain to let up . . .
