Indeed the names of flora are being forgotten.

Layers in so few lines. Beautiful job.

And loving the new header. Brrr here too, when not flooded.

That's a great haiku. I like it a lot.

Definitely one that will be a favorite for a long time.

I like the fall header, too.
People see with such different eyes, that is for sure.

So true. City birds often go as unremarked as well. It's so easy to blind ourselves to amazing things all around.

Trees in cities are seen and treated more like props I guess. Nice touches to the scenery, like furniture or a bit of art.

Excellent. A glimpse of urban life that doesn't idealize, sentimentalize, or demonize.

Haha - that's a bit harsh (I'm sure there might be one or two people who care).
