The Lilacs Are Finally Out!



Lilacs aren't my favourite flower but one can usually rely on them to be the harbingers of spring! Not this year. These aren't my lilacs, these are the neighbour's. Their tree has grown over the fence and several feet onto my deck.

Anyway, it's June 21 and the lilacs are finally out. Also, it won't get dark until after 11 tonight.

I love the smell of lilacs. I guess it's the little old lady in me. They calm me. I'm burning a chamomile/lilac candle right now and it's almost removed my desire to murder everyone in their face.

I am SO ENVIOUS of the 11:00 daylight thing.

I don't mind the fragrance of lilacs if they're outside. But to my nose, they take on a stench of skunk proportions if they're cut and brought into the house. I don't know why the aroma changes so drastically but I almost can't stand to be in the same house as cut lilacs.

I don't think it ever got really dark last night.

I love lilacs, pretty much everything about them.
