Lemons and Lilacs
According to the calendar, spring hasn’t started yet, but in my world it has. Over the weekend, our lilac tree burst into bloom. Maybe exploded is a better word to use to describe the event. The tree was covered and it is a delight to see. Since moving into our home almost five years ago, this explosion of blooms is the best so far. On Sunday, my father dropped off a standard sized paper grocery bag filled with lemons. The fatherly drop off has been a weekly occurrence for some time, but this bag had the largest crop including lemons the size of softballs. Yesterday, I shared the lemons and lilacs with my colleagues and it brightened everyone’s day. Thank you Mother Nature for sharing your bounty with us!
