Scent of Lilac

I love the purple lilac that grows outside my kitchen window. It's just starting to bloom, and should be glorious in another week or so.

I once read somewhere that lilac is the best scent for the kitchen . . . you know, hand soap and candles and such. I can't remember why lilacs are supposed to be superior in cutting odors, but I believe it. Actually, now that I've thought about it, I don't think it was lilac. It might have been lavender. Oh, well, no matter . . .

a sprig of fresh lilac in the kitchen is still a wonderful thing.

Lilacs are beautiful and do smell wonderful and your pictures are fabulous, but they make me sneeze like crazy!

Ours are done for another year. The season is so short. I love them, too. I read they were planted by outhouses for that vary reason.

Our lilacs have come and gone. I'm always sad when the lilacs are gone. Those pictures are beautiful!
