Right next to our kitchen door is a lilac bush. I've had a love/hate relationship with it for years. After years of not producing flowers I had Tim cut it down, and he was going to take it out but didn't get to it. It started to grow again and at least it looked nice in the space, so I left it. Then it began to bloom every year!
With our long winter, we're about three weeks behind where we normally are with trees and flowering shrubs.
I'm thankful for that spring is here and even though we are having April 'showers' today, the promise of the flowers in May is worth it!
I'm looking forward to the scent of lilacs filling the air, and that scent drifting into the house.
