Lovely ephemera.

Already this tree has gone far beyond this particular moment in its spring, but I couldn't let it pass without any notice at all here, even if this picture is now ten days old. 

It's looking to be another of those weeks, as we collectively plan next year's fall semester.  But tomorrow morning, my new wide eye is supposed to arrive from New York City, and I suspect I won't be able to keep myself from taking it for a look-see around town.
