The Sweet Smell of Lilacs

One thing I love this time of year is the smell of lilacs.

Today they were even sweeter because I walked several blocks to stop at two different bushes and take a deep, lingering inhale of the sweet fragrance. I was also able to stand for a couple of hours on the floor at work to cover some breaks. Yes, I'm paying the price a little bit as I have my ankle up and iced right now - but it just felt so good to be able to do something other than totally hobble all over.

I'm happy. I'm relieved and I'm feeling good.

Hooray for lilacs. Hooray for feeling strong.

Pikagirl, I stumbled across your blog by accident on the running forum. LOL at smelling the lilac bushes b/c I did the exact same thing! I walked into my neighbor's yard as I ran by so I could get a really good whiff! They smelled so good (I could smell them from the road) that I *had* to get a closer whiff!

Our lilacs bloomed a few weeks ago, but we're further south.
