One of my favorite scents of Spring is lilacs.  They remind me of the Lilac Festival in Rochester, NY when I was little, and our neighbor, Mrs. Fuller's backyard that had a wall of lilacs and you could smell them all over.  These lilacs are on my daily walk with the dog.  Every morning I stop to smell them.  You need to smell them as much as possible while they're in fresh bloom, because when they start to fade, the stink is unbelievable!  :-)

Such an amazing and odd thing, isn't it? To smell so good and then ton turn and smell so bad. They sure are BEAUTIFUL when they are in Bloom...!

Oops I did it again

Getting it short in anticipation of warm weather and more jogging, it grows fast and will be long again by next winter.
