Lilacs remind me of being a child and running down to the farm. Mama and Jaju up the farm had beautiful lilac trees surrounding their home right by the kitchen. It amazes me how a smell can transport you back decades into a memory. Lilacs always remind me of innocence and my great grandparents.
When we built our first home, the Mr bought me a lilac tree. We planted it right next to the side door. Most people used that door and it was such a welcoming sight.
The second home he built, that we currently live in, we bought a lilac tree and planted it right next to the front porch. This week, I saw the first emergence of buds. Brought a smile to my face.
Do certain flowers or plants remind you of a time in your life?
