Spring In Old Town Alexandria

Hello Again From The French Hen's Nest,

   Even though the temperature is still at 58 degrees in the afternoon, Spring has arrived in Alexandria, Virginia.  I was beginning to wonder if it was ever coming, as I'm sure that many of you felt the same way in lieu of the ferocious  winter we've had.
  Since Sunday was a beautiful day, I took a stroll through my favorite neighborhood.  Hope that you enjoy strolling through Old Town with me.

Flags are always flying in Old Town

I love this little blue house, adorable

Very welcoming

Flowers always bloom at this house

Blue eggs make this wreath

More flags flying

Love these urns, very pretty

Nothing prettier than Wisteria

and Dogwoods

A peek into the back patio, shhhh

These need a drink, but very patriotic

What's hiding behind these walls?

This is........ 

and some pretty things

Love the grey ribbons

Hope that you have enjoyed our stroll through Old Town, I certainly have.  Thank you so much for the visit.

Till Nest Time,
