Miracles every where

I awoke after a rough night of tossing and turning. As gruff as I felt a fabulous and familiar aroma wafted over me. i couldn't figure out where it was coming from. I love the aroma of lilacs...vivid memories of a tree I favored as a child...a little child.

Funny how those things come back to you

Roll tape backwards almost 3 weeks ago while vacationing in Normandy -  a trip i had been mentally planning for literally decades...I broke my foot. Truly an unexpected souvenir cutting my trip short. (more on that in another post)

The get well basket from my sisters arrived at my door on the return from the doctor. I was wrapped in a cast. A delightful surprise..a basket without flowers per se..."only" bulbs.  Bulbs so grand as they reveal their magnificence, unfolding their beauty in parallel to my healing; everyday bringing new blooms, new aromas and more mobility on my end.

This past Friday of  Mother's day weekend the basket looking spent... all bulbs appeared they had maxed out.  I decided to cut back all; trim up and just enjoy the greenery. As I made my way around the house; experiencing the quiet bittersweet feeling of the day more flowers began to bloom-  tulips seemingly out of no where exhibited their glorious color palette while other flowers emerged. It was only this morning that their distinctive shape and aroma revealed themselves totally.

Delicious delicious lilacs.
