Oh The Smell!!

As i was chasing down the delinquent pooch this evening, I had to walk through 3 yards to retrieve him. Each yard had a lilac bush, and the fragrance was spectacular.

Lilacs are my absolute favorite flower, it is just a shame they are here for such a short time. But for that short time, my house is filled with their smells. I gather several large bouquets and strategically place them around the house so that i can smell them everywhere i go. Not to mention their beauty alone is worth having them everywhere.

I must confess, i am a lilac stealer, i sneak lilacs off the neighbors trees.......when no one is looking. I will be doing that in about 2 days.

I feel better for confessing now. Enjoy your lilacs people!

our next-door neighbor used to grow beautiful roses. Every Mother's Day our mom would get a nice bouquet of them. That neighbor didn't really like us kids too much. Wonder why? We still joke about giving mom stolen roses.

Now I know where I got it from! I just walked 4 miles yesterday and stole as much Lilacs as my hands could hold!! Turned out to be 3 bouquets worth! My own lilac bush is looking pretty pathetic...the cats use it as a bed and a jungle gym.
