“Shades of Gramma's Lilacs”


Description from BelladonnaLee: The scent of lilacs pulls me back to a perfect time in my childhood when my mother and I would stop and pick lilacs for my Grandma. They are both gone now, but every Spring I think of them and smile, feeling peacefulness with every sweet breath, knowing they loved me and I them.

    I forgot to check comments for a while and how nice to read the things people said about my pick. Thank you! It’s comforting to know lilacs affect others in a similar way. The buds are forming on mine so it won’t be long until I’m inhaling their sweet fragrance. I can’t wait!

    What a beautiful pick! Isn’t it interesting how a fragrance such as lilacs can bring back such a happy memory to us? My mother has lilacs, too, and I will always think of her when I see and smell them. Thanks for sharing the memories of lilacs with us! :-)
