Spring Lilacs

We’ve had these stubborn lilacs for years, but they never did bloom until the spring after I lost Bryan.

Lilacs

Thank you, honey, I’m thinking of you too!

Happy Earth Day.

Note: this is not a sad or grieving post – just a sweet remembrance that the spring blesses me with.

    I love lilacs. Those are lovely. I hope they smell as nice as they look.

    Yes, they do smell lovely – they’re plain ol’ Syringa Vulgaris, the basic lilac species and the one that smells the most amazing.

    I so miss having Lilacs in the yard…at my parents house the driveway was lined with them and they always smelled so wonderful. A scent of my childhood. Thanks for sharing that pic Jeri, it helps bring back wonderful memories.
