Celebrating a Year

5.16.13Lilacs– heavenly fragrance and lovely lavender color. If I had to pick just one favorite flower– which luckily I don’t, as we can all love as many blossoms as we can stuff into our memories– it would have to be this one. Poets through the ages have agreed, and New Englanders too have been planting them since our forebears first arrived. Sometime in the midst of a wood you will come across a lilac bush, all that’s left to mark a long-gone homesite. I do have some at my new place, though they appear to be a hybrid as they are still tightly budded up. But the regular, hardy, famous perennial is blooming away all over my neighborhood, and its delicateĀ scent flavors my daily walks.
