I still filled the house with Lilac's and Pansy's for you ~ even though you couldn't come to visit this year!
It has that sweet familiar smell that reminds me of you. This was the first year I was able to pick them from my own yard instead of driving to all kinds of strange locations to "borrow a few blooms." I was reminded of the year I got so excited about a lilac bush on the side of the road ~ I forgot to put the car in park when I jumped out of the car ~ it rolled back and smashed into the car parked across the street!
Any amount of effort was worth your delight when you walked in the house from your long flight to the sweet smell of Lilacs everywhere!
I am missing you this week Mom ~ next year we will make up for it!
