18th and K Streets, N.W.

I took landscape design classes near this block of northwest Washington, D.C., for about three years. From the first spring, walking from the metro, I was struck with the particular beauty of the pale new leaves of the street trees against the blue and grey office buildings along K Street.

Now, it’s still a little thing I try to look out for every year. These pictures were taken about a week and a half ago.
