Driving along the boulevard, she noticed trees with leaves! When did they grow so fast? The rain and warm spells must have helped. And then she passed a house with cherry blossoms…she wanted to stop and take a photo but decided to keep the image more perfect in her memory. She sighed wishing she lived closer to this house and then she saw a magnolia tree! Well, now, this was a lovely drive filled with promise. These beauties could certainly tie her over until the apple blossoms expected in the next three weeks.
all worth the wait
She remembers, as a child, in June asking her grandmother when the lilacs will be ready. Such a fragrant gift to share…
yet, just a hope
scents of lilacs
picked by teacher’s pet
Fleeting memories keep her in a state of grace…calm and content, such a lovely escape.
