green little review

Poem for Friday and Huntley Meadows

82 degrees and sunny on Thursday in the DC suburbs, which are increasingly yellow (daffodils, forsythia) and pink (dogwood, magnolia, cherry blossoms) and starting to look rather green. I met twistedchick for lunch in Wheaton at Saigonese, at which I first ate in the late 1980s and which still makes excellent tofu with lemon grass. Then we walked around a bit in bookstores. Unfortunately, the aforementioned flowers conspired to give me a pollen headache -- it is time for allergy medicine, I'm afraid.

I took a walk around the neighborhood in the evening when the temperature dropped to see the flowers emerging -- purple azaleas blooming, hot pinks peeking out -- and had ravioli for dinner in honor of the Ides of March. Evening TV consisted of this week's DS9 episode and Awake, which I am really enjoying -- all the acting is good and I like that the episodes stand alone no matter what bigger conspiracy might be at work. A few more photos from Huntley Meadows last weekend:
