|Picture is slightly more pink than my eye sees it on the bush|
My soul expanded so fast I nearly lost consciousness. That's what a breath of 60 degree, exquisitely-fresh air on a spring, pure-blue-sky morning does to me. Add to it the intoxicating fragrance of these lilac blossoms, and I'm high on life for the next two days.
|Do you know the type of lilac? Leaves are about 2 1/4" long.|
What is bringing me back to earth (occasionally) is wondering what type of lilac this is. The flowers are small--the trumpet part is 5/8" long, four petals that extend 1/4" across with a hint of pinkish purple before the flower opens. After it opens, the flower is off-white with only the slightest suggestion of the pink/purple of its youth and with the most dazzling fragrance in the garden. One tiny spray of this lilac will soon sweeten a good size room and slowly love the whole house into heaven.
|I don't need to know its name to love it with all my heart.|
There are other Things I get to do today besides breathe and be carried away by bliss, so I touch earth from time to time. I'm certain that on a scale of one to ten, however, today I'm a 12. Find yourself a flower to smell. Dance with it to heaven.
