Lilacs and Romance

It's lilac time again here in the middle of nowhere in upstate New York. Driving down any country road with the car's windows down is a heavenly experience. Our yard has several ancient lilac trees in it, as well as a bunch of newer trees, so our home is sweet with the scent of their flowers.

This is one of my favorite times of the year! Sure, I love the purple and white flowers (which I have in vases in almost every room!) and the scent they impart, but mostly I like the way they make me feel. I can't explain it, but lilacs just feel romantic to me. They remind me of stolen kisses, long hand-held walks and moonlight... ah, well, let's just say they remind me.

Anyhow, is there any flower that speaks loudly of romance to you? Any scent that immediately brings your heart fluttering?

Wherever you are, I wish you lilacs!

Have a nice weekend!

I love lilac - its out here too, gorgeous flower, but you are not supposed to take it into the house as it's considered unlucky.
