May is such an incredibly beautiful month...
It is also the month my Dad was born...
...he will be 86 in a few days!
(and is still working on his dollhouses!)
Our beautiful daughter Kate was born on May 1st
and the lilacs were in full bloom the day we brought her home.
We are so fortunate to have three different varieties of lilacs
that were once our mothers and grandmothers.
Sharing my lilac love with all of you...
...and Happy Mother's Day too!
P.S. ...and just so you don't think that everything
around here smells heavenly...
...below is a photo I snapped of an unwanted intruder.
I have filled the house with buckets of lilacs but this fragrant fellow
has taken up residence under the front porch.
oh well :)
