You know it’s Spring When…

I know it’s spring time when the lilacs start giving off their powerful, uplifting aroma. For me it always brings back memories as a little girl of cutting the flowers for May Day, putting them in bundles, laying them on people’s doorsteps, running away and hiding to watch their reaction.

Here that tradition is non-existent for obvious reasons; seasons are opposite for one. But I am still excited that we have a big Lilac bush at the foot of our stairs. It’s another example of a little touch of home keeping it real. Not to mention its unforgettable fragrance.

Happy spring!

    I agree – the smell of lilacs is so evocative of spring! I adore their fragrance as well. Isn’t it amazing how certain aromas can conjure up memories? Happy spring!
