The sweet scent of lilacs always signals early spring. And when we smell a lilac we are always transported to a different time and place. A garden, our grandmother's perfume or a favorite childhood place. Such sweet memories. And they are in full bloom in my garden. It is such a pleasure to sit in my garden these days to smell their wonderful fragrance and to enjoy looking at the beautiful flowered shrubs.
What a lovely gift to get the chance to cut a few to enjoy in our homes. I love to keep a small vase near my bed to smell them in the morning. It is such a great way to begin a morning. They simply evoke beauty.
Spring is such a wonderful time of the year. It is when the earth wakes up and begins giving us all the best that mother nature has to offer. What is in bloom in your gardens???
Here are a few photos I took of my lovely lilacs this morning.
Have a blessed week.
Thank you for visiting me.
