. . . . but mostly Lilacs for me.
Now that the Lilac clusters were all fully bloomed, the scent on the breeze around our home has been just beautiful. I just HAD to clip some and bring some inside.
As soon as I brought the Lilacs into the house, my son said “But Mama, what if bugs live in there and they come in our house?” To which I replied “Oh Honey, I don’t think there are any in there.” No sooner did I get the words out of my mouth, did a baby spider drop down on a silk swing, right out of the Lilacs.
My son follows me into the kitchen and asks if I think they are all out now, and I told him “I think so, Babes”. And then….a little fruit-like-fly flies out almost into his face. “Ok…NOW, I think they are all out.” lol
I placed them in the sun room, and it was no time before they permeated the whole house. They are simply lovely to have around, so I thought I would share them with you. I wish you could smell them too, but unless your computer monitor is of the scratch-n-sniff type, I think you’re out of luck!
