But let's just say that Rosa "New Dawn" opened on the terrace and with it a whole new 2007 chapter. Maybe. Do you know the Nina Simone song? "It's a new (noo) dawn, it's a new (noo) day, it's a new (noo) life for me, yeah...And I'm feeeeeling good."
Also, the roses on the corner have opened. This is Henry Street and Congress. They grow up and over an old wrought iron fence and they are just lovely. Probably David Austin hybrids. I have mixed feelings about them. They confirm that spring is well and truly here, and they also mean that something has begun that can't be undone and that it's going to happen no matter what.
Yeah, right, whatever. But they're a bit scary anyway.
