Over the last couple days I have discovered THREE MORE WITCH HAZELS on Central Campus. Imagine my excitement.

Rackham Building, NW corner:

Mendelssohn Theater, north along Fletcher:

Student Activities Building:

so here to go with this is a favorite Sandy Denny demo of Dark the Night, and here is the Propellerheads' take on Romeo and Juliet, "Star Crossed Lovers".

day after the Ides of March. Maybe that's why the film unit down on central campus for George Clooney's upcoming movie "The Ides of March" seemed to be breaking camp this afternoon. Here's the front of the Michigan League from earlier today while they still had the big lights set up.

If there's a scene in the movie of a room full of light from stained glass windows you'll know it was the League Ballroom and these big floodlights on cherrypickers outside. The real reason for picture taking was to document this year's bloom of the witch hazel by the Natural History Museum. We first saw it on the 16th but my camera batteries were dead so the photo is from today the 17th, St. Patrick's Day.
