When I saw this red sky at dusk on Saturday 28 February 2015, accompanied by a clap of thunder, a rather uncommon phenomenon in San Francisco, I thought that the apocalypse had arrived -- or maybe, on second thought it was just the month of March "coming in like a lion". I even made a little movie about what I observed.

Now that the retaining wall has been constructed, it's time to start the landscaping project, so that we can bring the garden back to an even more beautiful state than it was prior to the construction. Marsha took some great photos on Day 1, illustrating the forms that will be used to create the new "bento boxes", the stairway into the lower level of the garden, and the styrofoam that will be used to mold the concrete benches in the new outdoor living space at the rear of the garden.

Here's a little humor to mark the final retaining wall owners' conference call between the Carolina owners and me. Our engineering geologist, Joel Baldwin, had commented early on, when someone had a question about his design concept, "You know you guys aren't building the Taj Mahal here." So, perhaps to refute Joel on that point, last night the tooth fairy dropped by and crowned our wall with this sign. You can read what it says in the closeup image. LOL

Pouring concrete into the footing trenches is the final step in construction of our new retaining wall. Now just the cleanup phase remains. Then the landscaping of my backyard can begin!

I was just organizing some old slides and discovered that, to my utter amazement, I was able to create a YouTube movie, in this case, an anthology of 15 years of photos of my friend since ninth grade, Stan Yantis. I thought that the clear vocal and piano tones of Michael Feinstein, like Stan, another successful gay boy, complemented the slides very nicely. --Bill Owen
