Do you have a favorite smell of Spring?
Mine is the scent of Lilacs.
I just love the look of these flowers. In my yard I have three different kinds of Lilac bushes. White , dark purple, and the kind that are above in the photo.
I wished I could remember all the Latin names for them. I do know what I like and how they look though.
I had a bunch of off shoots that I dug up a few Weeks ago. I’m hoping in about 5 years I will have two areas in my yard that will be in full bloom this time of year. The house will be chuck full of cut Lilacs.
In this part of New England you can drive along any old dirt or paved road and see rows upon rows of Lilac bushes. If you see an old farm house, you can be sure there is Lilac bush near by. When I was younger my mother & I use to go around and cut Lilacs from old abandoned properties. One place we use to go to, the Lilac bushes were really full and tall. Unfortunately that farm house got torn down to make room for a gas Station.
As I write this, I realize that anyone living south of us has already had the treat, of seeing these bloom this year. For us it is a welcome treat from a long , long, cold Winter.
Hope your enjoying your Spring and smelling the flowers.
