serenaded by lilacs

I know, I know….those of you who live in climates with year round flowers and trees won’t quite get this, but here we revel in the exuberant bursting of scent in our short seasons.

Lilacs sing with fresh soft colour and pillowy blossoms as they serenade us with their scent. What is overwhelming and overpowering in those body sprays and bath bubbles, becomes a song in the June breeze of my yard.


Lasting just long enough – like a song circling your mind until the next one comes out, the lilacs are here to fill my world with a minuet from the composition of the season.
