A visit from the Stork

There is a darling tradition here in Germany of hanging out a clothes line of baby clothes in the first days after a new baby is born. I first saw this tradition in Bavaria several years ago where the line was actually strung across the narrow cobblestone street - from one high window to the opposite side - marking a sort of threshold and welcoming. It was sweet then, as it is now.

Not sure it would have the same affect though if had tried this at home in California.
