A walk around Arlington, Va.

I am loving this great weather we’ve had the last few days. Did my first Arlington Loop (W&OD to Custis, back to W&OD..around 20 miles…and yes, I’m a tad sore..you know where) bike ride of the season. I love riding along the river and through the parks. Yesterday I took a 3 mile walk through the Overlee Knolls, Berkshire Oakwood, Crescent Hills neighborhoods. People take such pride in their gardening skills. I just love checking out all the flowers and new growth..and who doesn’t love the smell of fresh mulch in the morning?

Here are some scenes from my walkabout

When I first moved here over 20 years ago, I had never seen a black squirrel. When I saw my first one i was so excited. I thought it was some kind of mutant squirrel. Now I know better. They are still my favorites.

I lovet these multicolored daffodils.
