Johnson School Grove
This part of the world supports giant trees though the trend is toward cloned runts, patented biology, mini-trees. You’ve heard the slogan “right tree right place”. If you are a big, long lived native tree, back of the bus, off the bus, get on down the road. Git!

Influence your surroundings. Right infrastructure in the right place. Plant a giant. It will outlast you and the transmission lines.

That I may not denigrate foreign beliefs and may not poke fun at my own faith. The Gods look with grace upon those who plant trees along roads, in homesteads, at holy places, at crossroads, and by houses. If you wed, plant a wedding tree. If a child is born, plant a tree. If someone beloved dies, plant a tree for the Vėlė (shade of the deceased). At all holidays, during all important events, visit trees. Prayers will attain holiness through trees of thanks. So may it be!–Lithuanian Prayer

Water Street extended

The purpose of this report is to help to establish guidelines and a strong basis for a street tree planting master program for the city of Charlottesville .
Most people in Charlottesville recognize the value of trees in the cityscape, and the fact that much of the existing beauty and character of this city is due to its mature trees. As the city has grown, however, this aspect of its growth has been neglected…We therefore feel that the solution to the problem is within reach at this point, and we are convinced that now is the time to act to correct the problem where it already exists, and to reverse the trend in future development before it becomes too extensive and costly.–excerpt from the introduction of the Guidelines For A Street Tree Planting Master Program For Charlottesville Virginia (1975)


The word comes from the Greek sphygmós (pulse), plus the scientific term manometer (pressure meter). The device was invented by Samuel Siegfried Karl Ritter von Basch in 1881. Scipione Riva-Rocci introduced a more easily used version in 1896. In 1901, Harvey Cushing modernized the device and popularized it within the medical community.–Wikipedia

We have a “dogwood festival parade” in Charlottesville. I love a parade. People in the street. Music.

Florettes Majorettes, Richmond, VA

A communal celebration, in the daylight. The nearest we get in the Old Dominion to a second line.

I saw a former work colleague getting ready with the lion suit. Woody has been a Lion’s Club member for 32 years.

Market Street

A perfect day for a parade, cool temperatures, California quality light.


The main excitement was some vapor and engine noise from a biking contingent. Alas, breaking traction is frowned upon in the Old Dominion.


Haliaeetus leucocephalus
The Bald Eagle is an opportunistic feeder which subsists mainly on fish, which it swoops down and snatches from the water with its talons. It builds the largest nest of any North American bird and the largest tree nests ever recorded for any animal species, up to 4 meters (13 ft) deep, 2.5 meters (8.2 ft) wide, and one metric ton (1.1 tons) in weight.[2]–Wikipedia
