Weatherwise, at least. Cool for June: jacket weather, with grey mizzly rain. (In the day it was, once again, the usual torrential.) Like Tokyo's rainy season but not as humid and sticky. My kind of weather- rational, cool, calm. England in the '70s, Amsterdam in the 80s, Japan in the 90s, Toronto in '09, with the addition of lush greenery and flowers all about. My front yard trees have burgeoned over the winter and now encroach half-way onto my southern neighbour's lawn. Am tempted to get the tree cutters back to remove a bunch of lower limbs: this couldn't be another $1500 job, surely?
