Comments: There were no trees in our neighborhood when I was a child.
The caliche and flint-rock yards baked in the sun, yards were burnt to ochre by the end of June each year. The Queen Anne's Lace in our alley and the Johnson grass grew 3-4 feet high, the only green above my head.
Standing in the high weeds, I saw the flowers from below, against the blue sky.
