Final Touches

Remember my post about city workers cutting back all of the trees along the fence because they "needed a 3-foot clearance for the new sidewalk"?

Guess what? The workers are back: planting trees along the sidewalk!

A couple months ago we went to some summer solstice program at Tucson's own "stonehenge." The sunlight was supposed to do something dramatic with the way the henge was shaped, but some genius decided to landscape the henge with trees, so when the sun set nothing happened because the trees were in the way. So after the shaft of light disappeared behind the tops of the trees before reaching it's target on the other side of the henge, we noticed that there were trees planted at the exact spots where the sun was supposed to do something with each solstice - every single column was backed by a young tree, rendering the entire thing useless, like a watch with an opaque crystal. Genius. Pure genius.
