Cherries and Crabapples
I've come back to a city in bloom. Of course, I've only been away for a few days, so the difference isn't that dramatic. But the trees are more fully in flower and the streets are ornamented with pink and purple and red, against a backdrop of bright, fresh green.
These crabapples border a vast complex of rugby fields, and yesterday Olga and I walked the semi-circular public path around the property to get a better look. (The minute I came home late yesterday morning Olga was prancing around me expectantly, wanting a walk. It's probably been hard on her too, this period of my absence and Dave's illness and inactivity. If she noticed that I cheated on her with Maybelline, she forgave me instantly.)
By the way, I never before realized that we can see Wembley Stadium so clearly from this point. Or if I did, I forgot. It's at the far right in the distance in the photo above.
It's a beautiful time of year in London!
Dave and I are off to the hospital this morning to get him admitted and get the surgery underway. I'm counting on being there all day. Thanks for all your good wishes!
