As a child, winters seemed to be oh so long. For a child who loved the outdoors being inside was torturous, to say the least. I was always waiting for winter to end. One of the sure signs that winter was over, was the blooming of the Lilac tree.
We had a Lilac tree in our backyard. When it bloomed the much anticipated season had arrived! We had made it through another Winter. Now when I smell the heady fragrance of the Lilac tree, those childhood feelings reemerge. The Lilacs in our area are in bloom. Another winter has come and gone. Thank goodness!
