There is a delicious scent wafting through the air as I try to rest on the couch in my living room. The iris from the front and back gardens, the dwarf lilacs, the lupines, clematis and lilies of the valley, they’re all in bloom and sending me their well wishes in this marvelous perfume. I don’t remember experiencing this before, but then again, when was I ever home in the late morning this time of year when the sun hits the blooms and opens them up? With the front door and windows open, it is delightful and lifts my spirits.
