Outside the Front Door and in my Pocket

The Korean lilac tree outside our front door bloomed yesterday.
I love lilacs and this particular specimen is particularly fragrant...so much so the perfume wafting from it's flowers boarders on intoxicating. The placement is perfect as well... I opened my front door this morning my whole living room filled with the sweet smell of lilacs.
Nothing like flowers to get you in the mood for an 80 degree day!
I headed upstairs and pulled out a pair of last year's Capri pants, did a happy dance when they still fit, and found this in the pocket...
I going to take my unexpected windfall and use it to purchase charcoal and something yummy for the grill! I'll even put some lilacs in a vase to bring that front door feeling to the back yard! I love the feeling summer brings!

I'll delurk for a minute here to say, I too love lilacs - definitely a favorite. The smell just makes me happy to be alive and looking forward to the warm days ahead. Sounds like you have a lovely day planned. I hope you enjoy it.

I also really enjoy reading your blog and admire the fact that you manage to find the time to do it nearly every day. I am lucky if I update mine once a month!

Stay well.
