St. Patrick's Day - A Beautiful Spring Day in Frederick in March

I wandered downtown in Frederick MD around 4 o'clock to see the St. Patrick's day revelers, get my exercise in, and check out the cherry blossoms. It was at least 70 degrees and sunny.  Lots of people were out enjoying the day.  Click on any photo for a larger version.

Baker Park was full of families enjoying the great weather.

The Green Turtle and La Paz attracted great crowds with their outdoor seating and
St. Patrick's Day celebrations. One fellow saw that I was taking pictures and he is waving.
Walking down the alley I spotted this great play of light on the cherry blossoms and forsythia bush.
I love how they contrast with the concrete wall patina!

I was really attracted to the beautiful green of the water in contrast to the red of the bridge.
This is on Carroll Creek.

Who would have thought we'd be wearing shorts and sitting out side in March?
