The Scent of Lilac Air

One of my favorite scents of spring is lilac air.
Are you familiar with this sweet scent?
Well, right outside my back door is a 100 year old white lilac tree.
It's blossoms are in full bloom today. 
It shades our back patio with its graceful branches and sends a delicious perfume to all who stop by.
It's just lovely. 
I just wish I could bottle it!

How about you? 
Any Spring scents make you smile?

Lilacs are one of my very favorites! When I lived in the midwest, we had many varities of them! I miss their look and their smell!

When we take Molly for a walk, there are some honey suckle along the fence...it's strong, but nice.

Lilacs are the best!
