Lilacs for May

In the long-ago past, when we lived in Penrose, there were some large, productive lilac bushes on our land,  where there had once been a home.  When the end of May came, there were wonderful sprays of lilacs to be cut, put in two-quart jars, and placed around the house.  How we loved the fragrance of those lilacs.  I was so pleased when some friends brought these lilacs early for my birthday - they bloomed early in Preston, so they were gone by actual birthday time, but we really enjoyed the wonderful, evocative fragrance for several days.
