I’m so happy that we have flowering Lilac trees all around our front drive! They are so vibrant and healthy – and we can smell them when we walk out the door and play outside. I’ve read that it is healthy for them to be dead headed so I don’t feel bad about picking the flowers for my home – and oh the smell. I love the smell of lilacs – so fresh and light and sweet and it is a happy smell from my childhood. We had a huge tree in our backyard in St. Jerome and my mother always brought the flowers into the house, sometimes two or three bunches at a time! Every once in a while I catch a whiff of them when I’m in the kitchen and it makes me smile every time. I don’t think I’ll ever take small pleasure like this for granted.

What a beautiful place we live in, how lucky we are.
