When May comes after a long winter, it looks like green hues are painting the landscape all over the place.Since always you remember the spring smell of new leaves opening all over the forests, gardens, parks.And, indeed, when then first fresh green tiny leaves are unpacked from buds ,it again feels in  spring of this year everything could be possible, even the almost forgotten smell of lilacs seems to become more as mere memory quite soon.And when  then comes the first tiny spring rain,washing down leafy smell from the air,you feel spring is already evidently here ,but then you open the window and sweet smell of lilacs embraces you.There it is, lilacs in fool bloom , and now you know for sure, this spring is real……

    1. Yes, it is really nice to have it in the garden, it is a bit uninteresting at winter , but it pays off each spring, when its sweet smell brings spring to the garden!
