Come On Spring!!

I am writing this on a dreary, rainy, chilly spring day that followed a few absolutely magnificent winter days...go figure. I have been dreaming of my gorgeous lilacs in full bloom not only because of their beauty but also the way they fill our backyard with that wonderful fragrance and just of their reminder of spring and all it represents.

After a wicked winter full of cold, wind and LOTS of snow I think this year more than in recent years, we deserve a warm, lilac filled spring. Unfortunately, because of all of the wicked weather our 65 + year old lilac bushes have been pretty beaten up but with the warmth of the late winter days, what is left of them have started to bud out and reach out to the sun. Welcome back my friends!

I am right there with you! But I am hoping that my little lilac bush that I planted 3 years ago will bloom. Must have lilacs! And some sun!

Your watercolor is so lovely. Lilacs are one of my favorites.
