The other night when I was walking I got a whiff of something sooooo good in the air. Could it be?
Yes! The lilacs are out!
Fresh lilacs have got to be one of my favourite scents. I'm not crazy about lilac perfume or anything like that, but give me a lilac bush and I could sniff it for days. And that's precisely what I did tonight. I stole a branch and sat and sniffed it. Then I brought the branch home and put it in water on my bedside table, so now I can sniff it all night long. It may or may not be giving me a headache.
Now, here's a cute story about lilacs for you. When I was young, my dad, on his way home from work, would often stop on the side of the road to pick lilacs for my mom. Ohhh, they smelled so good. And that is how my love for lilacs was born. My parents also have two purple lilac bushes, which are way better than plain old white ones, in my opinion.
Fa la la la... spring is in the air...
