Lilacs

Lilacs

They have such a love­ly smell and such a brief season.

Update: In a bit of weird syn­chronic­i­ty, I post­ed this the day before “Wear the Lilac Day”, a day cre­at­ed by fans of the late Sir Ter­ry Pratchett—one of my favourite authors—to com­mem­o­rate his writ­ing and to sup­port research into Alzheimer Dis­ease. Since Dad had demen­tia, this one strikes me a bit as “is the uni­verse telling me something?”
