lilacs...

For anyone who would soak up their beauty and inhale a memory of their clean sweet scent... 





flowers bring peace in their own way.

without expectation
without obligation
without fail

they give...

  1. so true.

    oh i love lilacs. last year none bloomed so i pruned hard because our bush is so old (my great-grandmothers)and was happy to see about a dozen new blooms this year.

    their scent is heavenly.

    1. Oh... happy to hear you got some blooms this year. How wonderful to have that connection with your great-grandmother in so many flowers around your house. Are there not some daffodils planted by her there too?

    1. Thank you Tracey.
      A few people come to mind now when I see them. My husbands grandmother loves them too. It was at her house I first saw & smelled them. Love it when flowers are associated with people. Such a wonderfully peaceful association for me.
      I could only hope to be remembered at the sight of a flower someday. xo
