Lilacs!


Lilacs are probably my favorite flower. I've loved them since I was a kid and we had a huge lilac bush in front of our house. I love the color and the scent, and the fact that they mean I've survived the winter.

When we moved into our house 2 years ago one of the best surprises was the lilac bush right outside our bedroom window. If the weather is warm enough we can open the windows at night and have the subtle scent of lilacs wafting in.

Well, the lilacs have finally bloomed, but unfortunately it is a bit too cold to have the windows open at night, so I brought a few in and put them on my coffee table. It may prove to be a bit much, but I plan to enjoy them as much as possible.

I love lilacs! Unfortunately, we have only one, not very healthy bush in our yard so far. I need to work on that!

Heidi, it's too bad you're not closer. Our lilac bush has several sprouts that need to be removed - I'd give them to you if I could.
