Lemons and Lilacs

A delightful delicate scent perfumes the air.

A delightful, delicate scent perfumes the air.

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!
