This is what people think about Washington—It rains all the time, the skies are always gray, everything is gray, we all wear gray polar fleece and disappear into the fog, hibernating most of the winter. Don’t let out our little secret, but this is what it’s really like in Washington in January. There are flowers, bright and beautiful, teasing us out of winter. I just took these pictures today at the Washington Park Arboretum and I wish somehow I could capture their scents with a photograph. It was brilliance! Sweeter than sweet. Sparkling and rich. Delightful, fresh and transforming. Unforgettable love at first scent.
