happy Easter

This is an unashamedly seasonal picture: Highland Park is completely covered in white blossom, pale pink blossom, deep pink blossom, bright green leaves, deep pink leaves, daffodils, hyacinths, grape hyacinths, crocuses, tulips (plain, striped, feathered), narcissi, and cats on front porches.   This is not an environmentally motivated photograph, just a celebratory one.   What makes it very different from an English spring (and English landscape and the fringes of leafy suburbia is much on my mind, having just finished Howards End for a grad class tomorrow) is the violent suddenness with which it all happens.
