MMMMM... I'm in Heaven!


I have two lilac trees planted outside my front room windows and the first year I moved into the house, I kept all 3 windows open whenever I was home. The house filled with the wonderful aroma of fresh lilacs and each spring I anxiously look forward to revisiting that wonderful experience. Last year and the year before we got terrible frosts just as the trees were starting to bloom and alas, each year I lost the joy of flowering lilacs (boo, hisssss)
Well, I am happy to report that (barring any unforeseen clamity) my trees will be in FULL BLOOM by the weekend or first of next week.
Arent they lovely? My windows are already open too and I'm one happy cookie!
