This blog is dedicated to Lily. Soon she will be spreading her diamantiferous wings, and flying away.

And a 1998 photo of Lily, on the first day of school at the Nord Schule in Jena (Deutschland). Each child comes to the school, on the first day, with a "Zucker Tute" which is made by the parent, filled with candies and special delights. Naturally this makes for an

EXCITING DAY !!!!

my darling child, now grown up.

"Pure as the Lily, by the Grace of God."

Herzliche Glückwünsche, Beth and many happy greetings to sweet Lily! I'll have to see if I can dig my sugar-cone out of the attic. It's such a wonderful tradition, isn't it?
