Spring in Atlanta

I spent the weekend in Atlanta with Julia and it was so nice to see that leafy green city again.  Atlanta is so lush and green, with lots of big, old established trees that canopy the streets.  They are way ahead of us, lots in bloom.  Azaleas are everywhere, along with spring shrubs and flowers. The trees are all leafed out and the dogwoods were at their peak this weekend. The weather was perfect, and we walked to a Dogwood Festival in Piedmont Park on Saturday, filled with craft and art vendors, food, and music. The Atlanta BeltLine is right behind Julia's apartment so we took long walks on that both Saturday and Sunday, joining lots of walkers, cyclists, skateboarders, and runners. It really seemed like everyone in Atlanta was outside this weekend, and we spent most of our time outside, too, walking around the city and her neighborhood,  admiring the houses and gardens. Of course we had some pretty delicious meals too. We also visited Maggie, who lives in Atlanta and we took a stroll around her neighborhood with her and baby Liam. Lots of fun, but just nice to spend some time with my girl.

Lots of curbside gardens
