them have died. But there are still quite a few there, and they
looked marvelous this spring. You may not have been in town when
they were in bloom, but they were beautiful.

She planted 20 blocks, and I planted I don't know how
many blocks, but between me and the city matching me, I planted
74th to 96th. It really does look better. That's that. What
else happened here?
