Lovely, sweet smelling lilacs have bloomed at last.
I dreamed of these fragrant beauties during the frozen winter.
There is just no way to describe the incredibly beautiful fragrance of lilacs in the spring.
They propel me back to childhood days when we'd walk past dozens of lilac bushes in full bloom on our way to elementary school.
Sometimes, even then, I'd bury my face in the pale, lavender blooms and inhale their sweet and luscious fragrance.
When our children were small and we lived in the inner city, we were very materially poor.
Every spring, I'd ask a neighbor if I could cut lilacs from her bush and she always invited me to take as many as I wanted.
So I'd fill several vases with the huge bouquets I brought back into the house.
I put lilacs in almost every room and then felt rich!
Now my babies are all grown up and one lives far away. I still love to gather lilacs and bring them to home, sweet home.
Even though they come in lavender, pink and white, the lavender color is my fave.
DO YOU HAVE LILACS WHERE YOU LIVE?
