It's lilac time . It's been very cool here, so all of the blooming plants are able to showcase their finery for an extended period of time. I keep telling myself that, as I shiver in my sweaters and windbreakers. That, and also, the cold is keeping the biting bugs and mayflies at bay.
There's a gorgeous fragrance in the air as soon as I step outside. It's a feast for the senses. I can bring armfuls of these lilacs into the house.
And that's because we have *the biggest lilac bush ever*.
The lilacs scent the rooms. Have you ever noticed that bringing flowers indoors makes both the suroundings and the flowers more beautiful? They add a gentle sense of life to a room.
You can't really say that about people, though. People bring energy into a house, but they don't ornament it. And some people can just suck all of the air out of a room, or make it seem gloomy. I suppose one shouldn't compare people to flowers...I mean when was the last time a plant made you a nice cup of tea or rubbed your back? Exactly.
Enjoy your day, and don't let the gorgeous springtime make you feel too silly and giddy....it's too late for me, I am in the process of being bewitched by the season. Happens every year.
