This spring smells of lilac

Oh, the smell of lilacs

So good it never fails to make anyone fall in love

I once met lilacs in a northern country

I was young then

I was not an exception to be captivated

I couldn’t help bringing a sapling home

And I tried to naturalize it in a pot here

To my excitement It grew and brought out flowers

But to my deep disappointment

For reasons not known to me no smell came out

It has ever since been my cherished dream to go back to that country

      1. It’s only one quote πŸ™‚
        β€œImagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”

      2. Ah, I stand corrected. Sometime, I like to search on Einstein quotes on Google or on Pinterest. They are pretty cool. The other person it is fun to search on is Bruce Lee

      3. It’s fun. If you like to do projects and crafts, you can spend a lot of time there. I use it mostly for finding motivational sayings and ideas. It helps me keep focused on staying fit.

      1. Thank you, Monica. ❀ I’m glad you think so. Actually, I’ve been back to that country (the US Midwest bordering with Canada) a number of times, but it was always in summer. It has to be in a short period of time in May to enjoy the smell there… πŸ™‚

  2. You are getting me so excited, Monica. I have French Lilac bushes and when they bloom, every year I say I wish I could bottle that smell so I have it all year round. It is HEAVEN!!! Oh come on Spring, let’s go!!! I want to smell my Lilacs!!! Thank you SO much for this post. Ahhhhhh ….. Lilacs.
    PS Someday I believe the capability to smell through the computer will be a reality. Let’s see if that happens. Dream on!!! πŸ™‚
