Today I’m thankful for lilac.
Growing up there was a massive lilac bush next to our house. It was probably 3 meters (10 feet) tall and 5 meters (roughly 16 feet) in circumference. The flowers were the classic light purple color. It was one of the first things to bloom each spring. There was smaller honeysuckle alongside. When they bloomed together you could hear the bees from a good distance. The combined scents were indescribable. If I ever manage to buy some land and build a house lilac will be one of the first things I plant.
