Spring seems to be accelerating, with the sudden bloom of all the tulips in the flower beds in front of our building. This is the first year we've had tulips, and no one was sure what color they would be. I'm happy to see they're a beautiful shade of salmon pink.
I also thought you'd like another view of the backyard. As you can see, things are happening quickly there, too -- compare the view below to this photo, taken just a week ago. The blooms are almost all gone from the magnolia, and the horse chestnut is putting out little green umbrellas of leaves.
Pretty soon, I won't be able to see that building across the courtyard, and my neighbors and I will all lead substantially more private lives.
