what June looks like

Three months after 3/11, Tokyo still feels different and yet is very much the same. Take the hydrangeas, which always seem to sprout up everywhere this time of year, in the parks, on the side of the road, in pots outside doorways, wherever there is a bit of landscaping or spot of green, like so many mini cheerleader pom-poms.

Have always loved this lumpy stone lantern, which anchors the north end of Ebisu Prime Square, the bricked plaza up the stairs from the Lawson's and the Dexy Diner and the fountain, and right across the street from our building where most weekday afternoons a group of dogs and their owners get together for a playdate.
