our lilac are in bloom
I have all the windows open to allow their heavenly scent to come inside
and the lily of the valley ...
one little plant, chosen because I wanted to make my son's high school graduation boutonniere, all those years ago, has now spread across the garden like wild fire, trying to come into the lawn.
gifts from the garden
and I had our first finch spotting this morning
with all the windows open, I followed his pretty song ...
what a thrill to find him singing happily
not in the lilac
but in our front garden
sitting happily in our purple sand cherry
and then taking a drink from the birdbath which sits below
a Robin flew by with an enormous amount of nesting material in her beak
I hope she decides on somewhere in our garden
to build her nest
I have been looking in the "usual places" but no nests started yet
I will sip my tea
listen to Loreena McKennitt ~ the mystics dream
and inhale the sweet scent of lilac
