May Flower Madness?

Well, we certainly had a somewhat unusual flower-related start to the day today. Lying in bed at 6.30am, there was a knock at the door. Staggering down the stairs in our pjs, we opened the door to gentleman with a strong foreign accent, asking very politely if he might snip a few of the flowers from our lilac tree to take home to his wife!!
