I wait in anticipation each May. For all the snow, the cold, the winter that wouldn't give up- the lilacs are actually right no time this year. Lilacs being my absolute favorite flower, this time of year when they put on their show, makes me very happy.
There are huge lilac bushes (taller than the house) of purple and white right outside our bedroom window. Their intoxicating scent drifts in day and night and whispers through my dreams.
When I step outside to pick them so I can fill just about every vase in our house (and that's a lot of vases), I can't help but put my nose right into a blossom and inhale their most heavenly scent.
What a glorious gift.
One vase down. Many more to go.
I'll have to try my hand at painting lilacs during my watercolor time, to add to the other flowers I've been painting like yesterday's 'creative cuppa' (it's what I call my 'paint with morning tea' projects on instagram).
Here's wishing you a perfectly wonderful day, but first..........now that you know my favorite flower, what's your?
Ciao for now,
PS- Did you know that if you pick one little bloom off a lilac, and suck it from the bottom you get the tiniest burst of sweetness?
