lovely lilacs in lavender...

And, though I left behind the purple jacarandas in bloom, my generous Michigan gave me its own shade of purple...
in very lovely shades of lilac...
They were beautiful look at ...
and smelled simply divine.

Though I only captured the lavender ones,
they sprang out in white and a deeper purply color as well.

I remember the delights of lilacs from my childhood--
they always smelled so wonderful and sweet.
Their very fragrance took me back to those days of
childhood summer fun--
riding my bike and rollerskating around town,
looking for birds' nests and bits of bird eggs,
flying kites...
So much 'good stuff' in a pretty purple package!

"See! The winter is past;
the rains are over and gone.
Flowers appear on the earth;
the season of singing has come,
the cooing of doves is heard in our land.
The fig tree forms its early fruit;
the blossoming vines spread their fragrance..."
~Song of Solomon 2:11-13a


  1. Truly, truly beautiful Sharilyn. The entire post is smelling sweet. And though I'm sad to hear about Elijah, I'm reminded that he's at a safe place owned by God, and he must be enjoying things far beautiful than what we have here. Meanwhile, let's indulge in the goodness and beauty of God's work!

  2. P/S: I'm so in love with the last picture! =D


I'm so glad you've stopped by! I love hearing from you and can't wait to read your comments! Let me know what's on your mind and your heart today...
