This week, my community burst into clouds of purple, mauve, white, violet, and every related hue of beauty!
My schedule was full but I couldn't ignore the scent touching the air or the fact that these seasonal expressions of color and life are an exceptional gift after six month of grey winter. And I couldn't ignore a whole WALL of lilacs with a hidden wooden gate! Or the connection between a blooming belly and a blossoming bouquet! Or the joy of serving up fresh baking sprinkled with blossoms! Or the thought of a purple-tinged cocktail come July!
Sight. So much lovliness to embrace and enjoy....
So...I collected and concocted and called and created!
Twenty-four hours later, I grown a fresh maternity gallery, sugar, scones, infusion, and simple syrup...ALL with fresh lilacs!
Time well spent in a season so fleeting.
