The Weather Outside

Diana here:

The weather where I live is finally looking like spring.
What's your favorite part of this season?

This is mine:

When I walk out of my house the fragrance sweeps over me. I have one lilac bush and my neighbor has them planted like a fence down the side of his house. The smell always makes me think of measuring time. When the lilacs bloom it was closer to the time school would dismiss for the summer.

It meant tossing the heavy coat into the closet and forgetting I had one. Riding bikes, flying kites and having more time to play outside because the sun set later.

As I grew older it seemed to be the best time to fall in love. Every thing around me is fresh, new and so much color after the gray winter. Yes, spring is my favorite season--until fall comes.

And because it's spring I've a giveaway for you. 10 Steps For Creating a Romantic Date at home.

  1. Beautiful!! I miss lilacs. Haven't smelled one since moving away from KY.

    1. Then I'm so glad I posted the photo for you to enjoy, Missy. :)

  2. We don't get lilacs until June or so. Then they last a measly week. But I adore them while they're here. I have 3 lilac bushes. One is outside my office window. When the breeze blows the right direction, for a few minutes, I am in heaven.

    1. It seems like ours last almost 3 weeks. I've learned not to bother bringing them into the house though. They don't last 24 hours. :(
