this time each year i anxiously await the blooming of lilacs on the island and in the yard. they come and go so quickly, not lasting more than a week or so. I was traveling last week and missed the peak,
returning home to find that mine had already bloomed and were now fading. I guess i will need to wait another year to drink in the spender of it's fragrance.
