I wish I could convey in blog format the incredible sweetness of the air here. I don’t want to rub it in, for those of you who don’t quite have full-on spring yet (it’s coming!), but I think every imaginable spring flower is blooming right now. We have an orange tree right outside our door, and it’s bursting with blossoms. There’s pink jasmine, angel trumpets and pitisporium – the tree with the homeliest name but best smell I know. There are magnolias, calla lilies, tulips and daffodils… it’s almost too much. But not quite. A quick walk around the neighborhood this evening left me lightheaded after trying to breathe too deeply. Can you hyperventilate from trying to smell too much? Anyway, I’m glad it’s here.
