Walk to Golders Green, III
Right now the sudden surprise of a burst of colour stops me.
Or the scent of the lilacs, a variety I don't know -- one that Rebecca calls the Victoria lilac, since Victoria is the first place where she saw them.
The apartments are small, as well.
The one that we live in is split in two on the other side of us, and multiple families live there.
Some of the yards are well tended.
Other have a casual character.
I am not a skilled gardener yet, but I know that the casual-looking garden is as well tended as the one with straight edges and well clipped hedges.
When I go for the casual look at home, all that happens is that the weeds overtake plants that have come from the nursery.
Cows were huddled at the corner of the fence when I walked by there yesterday.
Today they were further away – the seen looked idyllic – a small meadow of buttercups.
I left when I realized how ridiculous I must look with my camera, running along side the fence, taking cow pictures.
