Bonn square trees are coming down

The Bonn Square redevelopment has reached that critical stage where the last tree without protesters in it has been felled, and there's a guy in an anorak looking at the woodchipper with a strange expression on his face. I imagine there'll be a confrontation soon.

birds and bees

Last saturday, I was walking from Tim's to my place, when I heard some starlings trying out some new tunes. They had some great whistles, and were squabbling and squawking away in a tree. Wow, I thought, they sound like they're flirting. I started to say to them, "it's not spring yet you fools" when I was interrupted by a solitary bee, buzzing purposefully across the road. And noticed that the tree had that light green flush that comes with early spring. Is it getting lighter?
