I love this Marilyn! It is interesting that we so often plant our birches in clusters like this. Here I imagine the building had a lot to do with the final shape, it is very arresting. I like the soft oranges and browns of the plants and bricks too. I have a yellow star for this one.

Thanks, Pam and Vicki, and especially for the yellow star, Vicki.

It was a big nostalgia thing for me to take these photos on Wednesday. I worked part time (one to three days a week) in this building for almost 12 years, and then for another 15 years I came very often to do historical research. Now that archives is moving to another location, so I had one last look around, inside and out. (For a number of years, I worked at a table right the other side of this wall!)

Cheers, Marilyn
