When it comes to Spring, Lilacs win in my favorites category.
Perhaps it’s because they are fragrant and blooming for about a week and then retreat to a regular bush?
When they bloom, the blossoms take up the space around them like a superstar on the runway. They burst open with vibrant lavender and purple and command your attention as you walk by.
What I love is that they own the space.
Much like a human when they are vibrant and exhibiting their best self, they own it without overpowering the beauty of all around them.
I wish the lilacs bloomed more often, I long for the scent that can’t be replicated.
Perhaps it’s why I love them?
There’s no taking that one week for granted.
I recognize and appreciate the full splendor of what’s happening, right now.
