Thankful: 7th

My absolute favorite scent is lilac.

They only bloom here for about two weeks every year and so it’s a rare treat, but I love that I can drive in early summer and catch a whiff of them on a country road.

My grandmother always had lilacs in her yard, and my childhood neighbors had a very large lilac bush on our property line. I used to cut them and fill my room with their scent every night that I could when I was small.

Mackinac Island, in between the upper and lower peninsulas of Michigan, is a very popular tourist destination. One of the things it’s known for is it’s lilac festival. They have lilac bushes of every type and variety planted all over the island. It’s quite a thing to be there when they are blooming.

This prompt made me happy today. Yay!
