Tomorrow, 5th of May, Cinco de Mayo, is my birthday. While I have lived in the southern hemisphere for 18 years now, I have never got used to having my birthday in the Autumn. Whilst we did have a sprinkling of snow on the ground a few times when we lived in the mountains of upstate New York, generally speaking, my birthday was accompanied by tulips and daffodils, blossoming fruit trees and the return of Red Robin. It’s one of the few things I really, truly miss.
On the other hand, I have a rather ferocious allergy to flowers. I’m less likely to be overcome by an allergy attack here!
