And then there is the apple tree with all it's lovely blossoms. The scent of it all is just delicious.
The lilacs are one of my favourites. I have a big bouquet on my kitchen table. There were really no lilacs last year....I think it was a sign of the drought to come. But this year the lilac bush is just loaded....I think it's a sign of a good summer ahead!
And then there are all these little 'dandy' yellow flowers. I never really like them much until my mother-in-law came for a visit when we were first married....she was just thrilled to see all the dandelions. I was confused and then she told me that dandelions don't grow where she lives....it's only 30 minutes away! She said that it's a sign of wonderfully fertile ground when you see dandelions. She lives in the sand. So now I have a deeper appreciation for the dandelions. There is a bumper crop this year.....
