The Greening of Kildare Road

People up and down our street are getting trees today! Awesome! The saplings are already laden with leafy buds, unmistakable memos of spring coming directly from City Hall. Hopefully they will increase property values as well as the likelihood of saleability for properties already on the market. God knows there are plenty of those -- I counted 12 signs on our street one day. Pretty alarming, given that this street is only 2 blocks long -- perhaps an eighth of a mile? And some of those real estate company signs have turned into auction company signs. Which, I'm afraid, is a somewhat less encouraging sign than the trees.

Nevermind: I told the guys planting the trees that they were superheroes. I meant it. The street looks so much better!
