May Beauty

It’s lilac time!

And what’s not to love about lilacs?

The plump purple spires,

heady perfume,

heart-shaped leaves.

In short,

perfection on a stem!

No wonder the May beauty

has been the subject of poetry &

the object of desire of presidents at

Monticello and

Mount Vernon.

If you are fortunate enough

to have a Lilacs,

by all means…

bring them in.
