Looks like this will be the last Spring I watch these trees bloom…
and the last year I’ll see Chapel Hill’s Downtown signature church steeple from the second floor roost of where I work.

Not quite “Where’s Waldo?” but, to twist a phrase from Sesame Street, one of these things is not like “reality”.
I remember when many of these trees were planted, have watched them develop over the years. I wonder how long I’ll remember their flowering? The memory of those wonderful gateway trees to University Square and along Franklin, since replaced by the green poles of the Church St. signal lights, are still firmly rooted in my mind, maybe these too will persist.
