It’s Lilac Season

I saw these at a bodega and couldn’t resist.  They remind me of my mom’s lilac bush from my childhood.  The beautiful scent has been filling my apartment and giving me flashbacks of plucking the the little flowers as a barefoot little kid.  Now I’m eagerly awaiting peony season which is only a couple weeks away. I also have great memories of my mom’s peonies in our back yard.

I visited my mom this past weekend and we spent some time in Georgetown with my sister.  We had just missed the cherry blossoms, but every yard was still brimming with flowering plants and trees (especially azaleas).  Apparently they carefully plan out their gardens so that there will always be something in season that is blooming.  When one type of flower dies, the next week something else grows in its place.  I wish I took pictures and I wish they did that sort of landscaping in NYC (on the few patches of dirt that we have).

Are there any varieties of seasonal flowers that you wait for every year? My most anticipated are definitely peonies.

    Lilac’s make me nostalgic for home too =) My mom’s backyard used to be a lilac and rose jungle but they finally tamed it and chopped a bunch of the trees.
