Spring is Springing

Trees are blooming all over the neighborhood. Under the white one met a man from Russia who is working on rehabing the old Castilleja School's first building. It's now an apartment house with a new third floor for the new owner. He was nice. He liked dogs. He's only the third person Alice has ever seen me walk right up to on first encounter. He said he had dogs in Russia but not here.

Tulips trees are going gangbusters. Soon all their big petals will fall on the sidewalks. But not for a long time.
