7:42 PM It moves to the left in the image and begins to blossom.
Looking down what was Third Avenue, and will be a freeway entrance ramp beneath the outfield stands.
Not sure what those supports are for -- probably stadia.
The first completed mural
The canopy as viewed through the outfield stands. The lighting approach, despite what you may have heard, is actually very traditional.
The big glove will go on that circle. Note the gap between the plaza and the ramp. That's 394 you can see through there.
I took this picture just moments before Morneau's homer landed almost exactly where I had been standing. If only I hadn't wanted to watch the game...

This is a good overview of the spot where the Northstar (bottom) and LRT (top) will intersect.
The overhang as seen through the unnumbered gate
The flowers don't have quite the fullness depicted in the original sketches (where they were positively overflowing), but they are quite lovely -- a great, subtle touch. And that's probably a very challenging place to grow anything.
This is the LRT path looking from the ballpark site (behind me) toward downtown. The line currently ends about two blocks up this street. This bridge over I-394 is also being partially rebuilt as part of the ballpark project.
The saddest event
That's Noah and my brother, Chris, checking out the Loge Box amenities
Stairs down to Seventh Street now have the start of railings
Griffith Stadium (notch visible in lower photo at far left)
7:32 PM Glare begins at about the left field foul pole.
Ketchup, mustard, relish, mustard, ketchup
Puckett atrium menu part 2 (Those prices match elsewhere in the ballpark.)
A look at Gate 34.
This will be a great neighborhood. Note that the covering is being built for the emergency access. Also, note the streamers above, which appear to be monitoring air flow.
Note reflected sunset (7:30 PM). Could be a worry...
Flowers. Real flowers.
Here's a rack of lights being prepared for lifting into the canopy.
Here's a closer look at the bullpen area. It's hard to tell for sure, but I think there is still an opening to the concourse right above.
For those not wishing to suffer through my media rant, please enjoy this picture of my lilacs in full bloom.

How many times did we water down our field as kids? More times than we played games, that's for sure!
Remember the pitch heard throughout Twins Territory? What an amazing day that was, April 12, 2010. (Photo by Tyler Wycoff)
A close-up of the rooftop party deck.
If you are into shade, there are lots of opportunities. This is from the last row in section 108 -- scoreboard not blocked in the least.
The Target Field grass, it turns out, will be green. (This is a photo representing the concept of grass only. The actual Target Field grass apparently will not contain dirt patches, weeds, or dandelions. Imagine that -- if you can!)
I see an opportunity in this view for an Abbey Road-style promotional photo! Mauer, Morneau, Nathan and Cuddyer walking toward the ballpark. The only question: which one takes off his cleats?
