Lilacs, Stories and Clothes

The lilacs suddenly came into bloom on Sunday. There was an electric current running silently from one bush to another throughout town and everyone agreed on a time. Suddenly, where there had been leafy green bushes, there were verdant high clumps of flowers blasting forth with their heady perfume and delighting the senses with their colors. Dark and intense purples, medium red-tinged purples of the French varieties, and the creamy whites, all are now blooming and making the city beautiful. It always amazes me that they are so wonderfully giving of themselves. I love lilacs, they are a sure sign of spring/summer, and their presence throughout our city just makes it even more beautiful.
