spring = nature on steroids

 This weekend was pretty great even without the car. I went for a walk on Friday in the sunshine and found amazing floral displays in Brookland gardens and in the wild woodland Fort Bunker Hill park. Saturday I watched as the heavy rains dumped buckets of rain on the 60 volunteers who showed up across the street to plant 18 new trees on the Turkey Thicket Playground. Then today I learned there was a talk by the national park service rangers at Ft. Bunker Hill park so I went up for the talk again in a perfectly sunny Sunday. Hope that the car will get it's new throttle position sensor installed tomorrow and come home.  Here are just a few of my photos from the weekend in the hood.
