Soft violet and bright green contrast sharply;
Their flourishing clusters adorn laneways and sidewalks throughout the city.
You need only close your eyes and breathe deeply, and the aroma will carry you to warm evenings spent sitting ‘round the barbeque.
As I step into my front path, I stop to bury my nose in the wondrous perfume of late spring.

The lilacs are out.

They remind me of bringing flowers for my teacher when I was a kid - my mother would cut some, wrap the ends in tinfoil, and I'd try not to crumple them on the bus.

That's a great image, Jay. Did you manage to get them to your teacher in one piece?

Not very often :)

I hope you haven't disappeared!

Oh, I'm still here... just searching for inspiration ;)
