Lilac, Won’t You Play Me a Tune?
Our lilac (Syringa vulgaris) in the back yard is in its full fragrant glory right now, covered in massive panicles of blossoms. Lilacs aren’t the best of cut flowers as they tend to get droopy in just a day or two. Nevertheless, Natalie cut a big bouquet of them and brought them into the house.
After dinner Brian brought the bouquet into the living room and set it on the piano stool. Now we sit and enjoy the fragrance as it fills the room, waiting for the flowers to begin dancing upon the keys.
