12 on 12 April 2015 Edition

My morning view, for a few more days until the leaves on the tree block my view for the summer. I hate that tree. 

My Farm for this year, I planted 4 times as much this year as last.  

If you ever wondered how high rise dwellers take the trash out, across the hall and down the chute.  A hint, don't every take the apartment backed up to the trash chute. I did that in my first abode in DC, at 2:00 AM one night someone dropped a case of empty beer bottles down the chute, one at a time laughing as the rattled down 15 floors.  

Spring is definitely starting to bloom. 

A Sunday Drive Along the George Washington Parkway. 

Is the symbol a bird or a stylized M?

The Potomac 

I call this the Troll Park, it is under the Wilson Bridge, at Jones Point.  What lives under a bridge, a Troll.  

Young Love?

Under that brass and glass pyramid, is the original corner stone marking the southern most corer of the District of Columbia at Jones Point.  The Virginia side south and west of the Potomac was ceded back to Virginia. 

One foot in Virginia, one in Maryland, on the original boundary line between DC and Maryland. 

The Wilson Bridge, crossing the Potomac just south of Old Town Alexandria Virginia.  I live about 1.5 miles from the bridge. 


  1. nice pix! in all the years I lived down there, I never once went under the WW bridge.

    1. The Park under the bridge opened just a couple of years ago. The Jones Point park on the south side was there before the bridge, the area under the bridge took a few years to develop

  2. I don't see no trolls in the photo, but I see a few munchkins.

  3. Basil, rosemary and parsley . . . all plants I plant outside along with oregano and curry but the first three are my main herbs. Great minds think alike!

    1. I added cilantro this year, I couldn't find chives.
