Lilacs

Lilac close up
Lilacs sing to you with their fragrance.

 

I came home from work, pulled into the carport and intended to go straight indoors to crash.  As I got out of the car though, I thought “Maybe I’ll just peak at the garden first”.  There are three steps that lead down into the back yard.  The ground felt soft from the recent rains, and then it hit me, an intoxicating fragrance, but what?  I have a small backcyard garden with mostly dadelions and violets right now, and we have no flowering trees.  What could it be, some flowering vine or strange tree flowers up in the sky?  I closed my eyes to focus on the scent and then I knew.  It had to be lilac!  Over the fence, in the neighbor’s front yard, there was an old motherly lilac bush, reaching out to touch my mind.  Do flowers ever do that to you too?
