A day in May

This is the day the meds don't work, so I've been home all day reading the Kalevala.

Good: the plums, tree and bush, have burst into blossom overnight. Bad: I cannot smell the plum blossoms, even though nose and mouth are both recovering. Good and bad: nose and mouth are recovering.

Cheery tree also has blossoms, one or two, amongst the leaves. Remains to be seen how many there will be ultimately. Neighbours' cherry has neither so far.
