Tidal Basin, Washington DC ~ 4.5.12
Kat Sloma at KAT EYE STUDIO coordinates a monthly posting called... PHOTO-HEART CONNECTION. The guidelines for posting are found HERE!
APRIL sped by... I bounced from coast-to-coast during Spring Break! And, although schools weren't in session, my desk was piled with projects & work details to be dealt with, upon my return.
Looking through my photos from APRIL, I kept returning to these TWO pictures...
Not considering the sticky, humid weather of the summers in Washington DC, my image of their weather is breezy, with a slight chill to the air... well, the weather was exactly as expected --- quite love-ly with multi-shades of rich green foliage & vibrant, rainbow-colored flowers... E.V.E.R.Y.W.H.E.R.E you looked. I think Washington DC & Arlington, VA (where SLE & MB live) must have fabulously inexpensive flowers?? or incredible sales on bedding plants.
It was the 100th Year Anniversary of the National Cherry Blossom Festival. So, of course we took a drive! I hadn't counted on the pink blossoms being so soft-to-the-touch... it was a love-ly day spent with two of my favorite people & Sea-Bass (guide dog, alias lover-boy!). Our little adventure took the edge off the anxiety of the next day's event (SLE's back surgery - she's still healing)... this picture still tugs at my heart!
Tugging at my heart, for other reasons, was this picture of Big Bear Lake... JPE picked me up at the newly-remodeled Santa Barbara Airport & we headed to the lake for an Easter celebration & some R&R!

Ahhh! imagine a steamy cup of coffee... a cozy Adirondack chair... & a new magazine! heaven-ly! Actually, the weather changed the next day... & we ended our week with wind, rain, snow flurries, & pelting raindrops.
Early mornings are ideal for enjoying the calm-ness of the lake... the birds dipping, diving, & skimming the waters, looking for insects & tidbits of food. Such a pleasant way to start-the-day!
My HEART CONNECTION = NATURE
So --- I'm thinking my APRIL PHOTO-HEART CONNECTION is a draw between EAST vs WEST... both tug at my heart... for very different reasons!
Better yet... blog & link your own photo.
