At Parcul Circului for the first time after lockdown. I didn't get to see the big magnolia in flower, but it looks to be in good health, and I have the photos from previous years. In other news, they removed the benches. Uh... dear mayor, you realize people can sit on the grass too, right? And some of those benches were historical.

    @felixp7 sadly I think a lot of administrations/councils do similar! Near us, there’s a bar I live down this tiny little alley in the historic quarter that had a beautiful old lamp outside...the owners arrived at their bar last week (still closed due to covid here) and the council had ripped down the historic metal lamp and replaced with a modern plastic monstrosity - totally out of place for the area, and would never have been allowed by the owners - but council can do what they like!!

    @Sarah Thank you! And who knows why anyone in our administration does anything. Measures are always drastic, ill-considered and never walked back on after they prove ineffective. Performative governance!

    I just googled the park - those magnolia are amazing!!! We actually have one in our garden but it’s nothing compared to this!!! Have they removed the benches so people can’t sit on them? If so, presumably they will return when life ever gets back to normal?? 🤞🏻
