the sweet smell





shall i describe to you the fragrant air that surrounds my house. shall i tell you while i lay by the window reading about the virginia and her childhood in london that the wind brings to me the sweetest smell from the lilacs blooming in my yard. shall i tell you that i act as i onced did in my own childhood and take a single bud in between my fingers and bring it to my lips and inhale the nectar into my lungs.

shall i tell you this morning it is heaven on hudson.

ps. bonne fete chere corine

i have never smelt a lilac before nadia but the way in which you have described it, really makes me want to.

How sweet as Lilac of you! And did you know that the only lilac that rows in southern California doesn't smell good at all?

This time of year is so wonderful - the lilacs are so heady. I just want to gather them all up in my arms.

Beautiful pictures! I also filled my lungs and lens with lilacs this weekend. They are indeed heavenly!

oh so pretty--loving "lilac week"--esepcially yours--they always remind me to savor each week of spring, one by one...
