Nothing reminds me more of Mother's Day than seeing the lilacs bloom. They arrive in their splendor exactly in time. I know God has a plan because he sends us lilacs to honor our Moms. I like to fill my vintage pitchers with all the lilacs I can put my hands on as their season is so short lived. The aroma of fresh lilacs wafting through each room is so intoxicating. They represent romance and love. So be sure to pick some lovely lilacs to present to your Mom and she will know she is loved. Happy Mother's Day!
