The breath of spring is in the air after a dreadfully long and brutal winter, a winter I feared would never end!
But at long last, it is here.
Peanut Butter and Jam?
I know you are all thinking: ‘What does a Lilac tree and peanut-butter have in common?’
Well to me, Lilacs and Spring go together like Peanut Butter and Jam.
With the arrival of spring, the windows of my house are thrown open, blowing out the doldrums of winter and infusing it with the fresh scent of spring. And it is not spring without the pungent smell of lilac wafting through those wide open windows.
With the late snows my tree is not yet in bloom, but it soon will be. And soon my house will be steeped in the aroma of spring.
Maybe I’ll have a PB&J just to celebrate.
