Right now, every morning when I step outside, I am assaulted by the most wonderful scent in the whole world..... LILACS. They will be even better today with the rain. I would give up every other season of the year (even though I would miss the snow and the hot enough to swim all day days) if I could smell lilacs all year. I think it's about time to send my husband out in the middle of the night to pick me some lilacs so my room will smell like them. He has to sneak out at night since we don't actually have our own, and yes, he does this for me.
