But it was just too hot! I'll always vote a cool, rainy spring and summer over heatwaves and humidity. (But where do we vote?) Here's hoping for a lot of sweater weather this summer.
Yesterday, I noticed that leaves on the Commonwealth Avenue mall had popped, seemingly overnight. One day you happen to look up — and there there they are, in clouds of bright-green baby fluff, promising shade and summertime ahead.
The magnolias on the sunny side of the street are at the peak of perfection, too:
Those of us on the shady side of the street will get our blooms in a week or two. By that time, these petals will be making Comm. Ave. almost as slippery as it is in January. Remember January?
