The lilacs are in full bloom. Sitting out back, there is no escaping that incredible scent. It is one of my favorites, but the scent doesnít last if you cut the branches. Iíve learned that lesson, I just let the blossoms go on the tree. It is wonderful to have the perfume waft over you when a breeze kicks up. The weather this spring has not been conducive to sitting outside for long periods, but thereís warm sunshine in this late afternoon, and I cannot resist resting for a few minutes here in this little bubble of actual spring beauty.
