Lilacs – My Spring Passion

For as lpiZap_1560193049979ong as I can remember, lilacs have occupied a special place in my memories and appreciation of spring.

Growing up in the big city, I remember a bank of lilacs that bordered our backyard. There was a treasured swing set that was positioned parallel to the lilacs and to this very day, if I close my eyes, I can still feel myself swinging while smelling that intoxicating fragrance wafting through the warm spring breeze.  

I have long since left childhood behind, but some memories, like those lilacs, remain imbedded in my mind as if I were once again swinging to and fro on that swing. 

IMG_20190610_075651Lilacs are my spring flowering shrub, the one plant that I long to see, long to smell, and the one plant I couldn’t bear not seeing this time of year.

So in honour of this passion, I drove around Parry Sound last weekend, photographing some of the stands of lilacs that pepper the town.

I wish lilacs would bloom all season.

2018: Year in Review — The Jaguar

Tis the season for “Happy New Year” and “Year in Review” blog posts. Since nothing makes me happier than going along with the crowd, I figured I’d jump on the bandwagon. I’ll now reflect on how 2018 went for this blog and myself, and then look towards the future. 2018 was a difficult year for […]
