Lilacs at Last!
I adore lilacs. They are up there with tulips, peonies and begonias as some of my favorite flowers. My parents’ yard in Michigan was bordered with them when I was growing up and I use to love the smell of them breezing through the open windows. Sometimes I would cut them and put them in a vase and put them on my windowsill to intensify the smell.
We’ve been in our current house now for almost 5 years and just as this little lilac bush would start to bloom, we’d inevitably get a freeze and it would never finish blooming.
But not this year.
And I am happy…very happy.
