Love in the Time of Lilacs

Art work by Cheri Wallenberg

A harbinger of spring, the melodic sound of the songbird and ~ Lilacs. They were my grandmother's favorite, my mother's favorite, and now2, mine and my sister's favorite flower.  There is nothing more intoxicating then walking into a room that is filled with the fragrant bouquet of the lilac

                                           Lilacs Have Come, Spring Has Sprung.

                                           Pink, Purple and White.
                                          A Breeze Sways the Branch.
                                       Heavy Flowers Back and Forth.
                                            Lilacs Drip With Rain.
                                          Now, Sparkling in Sun.
                                       The Lilacs Cheer My Spirit.
                                             Beautiful Flowers.

 **TIP ~ before you put those beauties in a vase, after you have sheared it from the tree, on an angle, take a hammer and smash the end.  It opens up all the fibrous membranes and allows for better water absorption.
