"Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam!" G-ji recommends a classic Bollywood musical drama from 1962, as she leads Golem on a brisk Easter morning circumnavigation of the Kenwood cherry blossom display. A price check puts a modest home at more than $2 million. Flowers bloom even from the trunks of the trees. A pair of Portuguese-speaking ladies pop out of a new car to pose for photos.

"Good morning, Summer!" says Half Full to the pretty puppy taking her owner out on a walk. Summer stands atop a small boulder and graciously accepts praise. With Spuds and Golem the trio surveys the White Flint neighborhood. Cherry blossom trees here were planted at a local resident's initiative more than half a century ago, and their flowers flutter and gleam in the Sunday morning sunlight.
