If It's May It Must Be Time for Lilacs!

"With every leaf a miracle … and from this bush in the door-yard,
With delicate-colour’d blossoms, and heart-shaped leaves of rich green
A sprig, with its flower, I break."
Walt Whitman—When Lilacs Last in the Door-Yard Bloom’d. III. Leaves of Grass.

I love this time of year with Lilacs blooming and sharing its special fragrance with us on our walks in the garden. We celebrate the Lilac in our city which is lucky for me...because in my family it was our traditional bouquet of springtime! My mother loved picking Lilacs, smelling Lilacs and sharing Lilacs!


  1. Hola querida,

    Después de tanto tiempo en off, vuelvo a las andanzas, y me alegra...he pasado para saludarte.

    1. Great to hear from you again Lany! It has been a while since I have been actively blogging again too. But I will get my focus back on my writing soon!
