Here is my sweet little nephew with lilacs for me- well, not really for me but his mommy was thinking of me when she picked these :)
I saw a few small lilac bushes here in VA and even got to smell some. But, they are not the same. The bushes don't grow as big and the smell is not nearly as fragrant. So my family further north will all have to enjoy the lilacs for me. And if by chance someone mails me some (like someone did last year) just know that they retain their amazing smell even by mail. (hint hint ;) )
In the meantime I will enjoy this picture and be glad I was thought of.
