They grew all over the neighborhood where we lived.
They grow on big bushes and the flowers have an intoxicating sweet smell.
There is one memory of me sticking my whole face into a light purple lilac bush and inhaling deeply.
It was pure heaven.
Even today, may decades later, lilacs remain one of my favorite harbingers of spring.
Right now, I am enjoying a bouquet of lilacs from my daughter.
Her yard is lined with lilac bushes!
It is on the table near my bed and it almost guarantees sweet dreams.
HAVE YOU SEEN PINK AND WHITE LILACS?
