  7. have the cherry blossoms made their appearance yet?!

  8. Naomi

    Try eating locally made honey. It helps with allergies. Google it.

    I have never been to DC but I want to…

    Love your blog

    and your new little rock star

  9. geri e.

    Gorgeous pictures ♥

  17. Gorgeous to the max. We're having our first sunny/warm day up here in Massachusetts; spring is just so beautiful.

  18. these photographs are beautiful! what i would give to live on the east coast where there are REAL seasons. southern california feels like spring/summer all year long. it's nice weather wise, but i could use a little variety!

  40. Liz V.

    That last photo is so stunning!

  41. spring tried to show up in in nyc today although we don't have any of those pretty blooms yet. so soon!

  42. Man, how I miss that. I really like the picture of the branch against that brick house. The red of the exposed brick goes nicely with the blossoms.

  43. Hurray for Spring! I'm so tired of the cold!

  44. no waaay i'm so jealous! it gives me hope though.. can't be long! that last picture with the bee is amaaazing.


  45. Liset M

  46. misss_e

    I can't wait to move back home. I miss the row houses…busy streets…and scenery.

  47. Bridget

    those pictures are great. you guys need to list photogs on your list of many talents.

    and mosquitos are never nice. i hate them with a passion.

  48. this is so fabulous! i cannot wait to one day visit your beautiful little city :) lovely!

  49. this is like fairytale spring! sooooo beautiful. i bet your loving every second of the spring time with your new little spring chicken :)

  50. Haley

    i recommend local honey for the allergies! (it's like eating the pollen and building up an immunity rather than breathing and sneezing!)

    pretty, pretty springtime pictures.

  51. kate

    wonderful photos!!! i love the one with the bee! just amazing.

  52. Stacie

    Hey! I've loved your blog for a while– I was just wondering what lens you use? :)

  53. Oooh I want it to be spring in Utah so badly.

    such lovely pictures.

    i love washington dc.

    especially springtime dc.

  54. Kylie

  58. Capitol Hill looks like an amazing place to live <3

  59. Nina

    very pretty flowers… and awesome photos!

  60. misie

    DC in the spring is the jam. Annapolis isn't too shabby either if you like little towns on the water – only a 40 minute drive from Capitol Hill. :-)

  61. Beautiful. We just moved to the Hill, and I'm hoping to get out with my camera this weekend.

  62. a) a friend of mine recommended your blog a few weeks ago, just getting to it now…
    b) I love it.
    c) my mom took me to D.C. last year over spring break – she had a work meeting, I just adventured around by myself.
    d) i miss d.c. so much. your blog makes me happy.

    thanks :)

  63. Mary

  76. That is such good news! My husband served his mission in D.C. and after 3 yrs of marriage/dreaming about making a trip out there we are finally going next week! We were worried that the flowers wouldn't have bloomed by the time we got there, but this post has just made us even more excited about our long awaited trip! Thanks so much!

  77. it looks beautiful!

  78. Beautiful! I live in Oregon, where the rain doesn't stop until after July 4. I'm totally jealous of your spring!

  79. I love cheery blossoms and daffodils! The trees are holding back in Vancouver…but the crocuses are beginning. a rebirth. ahhhh.

  80. Caitlin

    Hello Naomi! This is kind of a long shot – but I was wondering if there's any chance you'd be willing to feature a fellow rocker from Utah out? My husband's band, Fictionist, is involved in a big-time competition with rolling stone magazine (http://www.rollingstone.com/choosethecover) and we really want to win. There are more details on my blog (hueandhum.com) and I'd love to chat with you about it! Feel free to email me – we'd be happy to do some shnazzy give-aways or something.

    thanks a bunch.

    What gorgeous shots of spring on capitol hill. I thought that autumn was glorious with all the gentle amber leaves but this is just magical.

  83. BSJ

    Makes me want to live there. Almost. But I don't think I could bring myself to leave this lovely beach town, wonderful surf & year-round tan ;) Although I would kill for an old colonial house.
