This spring’s up and down weather has made it hard to know when winter was finally behind us. I think it is safe to say that by now spring is in full swing abound the neighborhood. Unfortunately, the daffodils and many tulips are done for the season. Still, many trees and flowers are just now strutting their stuff. We took these pictures from 10th – 14th Streets and Franklin, Gerard, Hamlin, and Irving Streets, NE. (You need flash to view the photos, if you cannot see them go here to view.)
We took these photos of the holiday light displays around the neighborhood, mostly Irving, Jackson, Kearney, Newton and 10th – 14th Streets. Great job, neighbors! Hope you enjoy the pics and have a wonderful holiday. (You need Flash to see the photos. If you cannot see them, click here.)
We thought readers would like to see photos from this year’s Brookland “Celebration of Lights”, which took place last night, on Sunday, December 11th. The highlight of the annual event is the trolley tours, driving past Brookland’s best and most elaborate light and decoration displays. This year the trolley tours departed again from the Mekiti Group Plaza, where neighbors mixed and mingled, enjoyed holiday treats and a fire pit, and kids watched holiday movies. We took the photos below – enjoy! (You need flash to see the photos, if you can’t see them, click here.)
We took these photos around the neighborhood during the last couple of weeks. Enjoy!

It seems like everywhere you look, Brookland’s gardens and trees are coming back to life. We took these pics on Hamlin, Irving, Jackson, Kearney, Lawrence, and 10th – 14th Streets, NE. Enjoy! (You need flash to see the photos below. If you can’t see them, click here to open the gallery in Flikr.)
Well, it finally stopped snowing, the sun came out and neighbors have been digging themselves out. We took these pictures around Brookland of Snowzilla’s aftermath – enjoy. (You need flash to see the photos below. If you can’t see them, go here.)
We took a bunch of photos around the neighborhood of the best holiday light displays we could find. Great job, neighbors! Hope you enjoy the pics and have a wonderful holiday.
Like every fall, Brookland presents itself in spectacular colors. We did a few snap shots between 10 and 13th, and Hamlin and Kearney Streets, NE.
Hope you enjoy the pics and let’s not forget that we all have to be ambassadors for our trees, the mature ones and the young ones ….. the one in our yards and the ones in the tree boxes.
Enjoy the season.
