I wish that you could smell these lilacs through the computer screen. You would be smiling. It is May 1st already. I read once that in Germany there is a sweet May Day tradition. If a boy likes a girl he delivers a tree decorated with colored streamers to her house the night before. Isn't that wonderful? I would wish for a Magnolia tree.
In unhappier news, we are sick with colds. Again. I can only assume that we have somehow angered the gods of cold and flu. They have decided to curse us repeatedly. Maybe I should make an offering of Kleenex and echinacea to try and appease them.
