Lilacs in the Dooryard Bloom

Lilac Time!

May may be the best month of the year, because our little town becomes Lilac Town and our backyard is filled with the heavenly smell of lilacs.  I cut a few for the table for mother's day.

They were my mom's favourite flower, too. They spread by sucker roots from one plant to another. A mother plant may be dead yet the daughter plants, still attached, will live.  A metaphor if I ever saw one.

Maybe we planted it a little too close to the house, but I like to look from the kitchen table, through the window on the right.

What else do you want from life?
