Lilacs are Coming! Lilacs are Coming!

Though today we could have gotten snow and hail, and the wind is gusting at 55 mph (our power went out all morning), the lilacs are blooming!

So, a tree limb just crashed down on my car, but I am staying focused on the promise of spring's beauty!

How beautiful, to look out your window & see this beautiful lilac bush.
Just think, soon you can have the window open & let that heavenly scent into your home!

Oh my gosh Kathy, a tree limb on your car, oy! What a bummer! Hope your insurance fixes you up in no time and you can get back to enjoying those lovely lilacs!

Update: The top of my car is okay, but it took a tail light out...not as bad as it could have been! And, it did snow on Mother's Day-- a first for me. :)

Hello Kathy,

Thank you for the visit to my blog, you asked and I felt compelled to asnwer quickly. I own "The Historian", I even started it once and I had the feeling it would be a good vampire story, not the kind we turned used nowadays. I left it because I got new ones and one from Murakami and I love Murakami so I couldn't avoid it, plus the edition I own of "The Historian" had a terrible font and it turn really hard to the eyes to read it. I got with a magazine for a very cheap price, but I guess they do not care a lot about about they edit the books... anyways, I really want to read it some fine day and I'm glad you mentioned it :)

Plus, I love those lilacs :) I love flowers, not that much in a jar but growing, I prefer much more them in a garden or inside pot growing, than inside a jar with water and cut. That house behind them make me feel it is such a beautiful place with a dreamy garden as we see in films!

Much love from Portugal,
