Walking out.

I run into the law school to pick up some exams and leave, through the stairwell with the pingpong table, out the door, into the 40° drizzle, and -- oh, lilacs!

But the petals are all falling...

I love jasmine, gardenias, sweet olive and magnolias. I love having warm weather up through December, and something blooming and greening all year around.

But I also miss seasons sometimes, and having lived in the midwest for a few years, I miss lilacs, and other flowers that do well up North. This made me nostalgic. It's the second time lilacs have come up in conversation this week; I find myself wanting to watch spring happening somewhere.

That means it's time to plant the tomatoes.

If for nothing but those lilacs, the next version of YouTube needs to include YouSniff.

One of the first things we did after buying our house was to plant a lilac bush in the backyard. I keep hoping it will eventually bloom, but i fear that our yard doesn't get enough sun for it. I am so glad that some of my neighbors hve them. I love lilacs.
