Oh I adore lilacs so much that I painted my guest room a pretty lilac shade.

Thank you for your kind comments on Marty's blog.

Michelle this is a beautiful post! What a memory to have stored in your heart of your dear grandparents. I teared up while reading it because my grandparents had a bush growing next to their front walkway and it smelled heavenly everytime you walked by. When we moved to this home I heard that the family living in my grandparents home were going to remove the lilac bush and I asked if I could come and get it to plant in my own garden. It had been planted by my great-grandmother and I wanted to save it if I could. It now blooms for me here in my own garden and the blooms smell even sweeter than I remember as a child. Your poem is so beautiful, and I loved every word!
Thank you for making me remember today.

This is the sweetest thing ever, mine is honeysuckle and my great aunt jenny.
Very similar memories.
Til this day I still can't pass by a honeysuckle bush without thinking of her ,she is 94, and pull a bloom to suck on.

Sweetie,
Okay, the post for your sister made me bawl, now I read the lilac bush & it's the BEST ever! Oh friend, you have such a gift for the written word. The poem is wonderful, but the story after, oh I'm just sitting here visualizing it all with tears down my face. Great Job.

Awe, what a sweet story about your Grandparents and their lilac bush! Lilacs are so wonderful, aren't they?

You tell the best stories, Michelle. You bring back memories for all of us when you tell your life stories. I love it.

I, too love the smell of lilacs and very much enjoyed your story and poem. Funny how a bush or a smell can remind us of things from our childhood.

Michelle your poem is so lovely ~ thank you for sharing this wonderful story. While "seeing" something every day is a lovely memory of days gone by it is what is held dear in one's heart that is the most precious memory of all. My heart is full of them and I know yours is too!

2010-05-12T15:37:43.500-07:00

That's such a lovely story! We left England when I was only 8, just my parents, myself and my older brothe so I missed out on grandparents:( My mom was estranged from her both of her parents so I barely knew them and never saw my dads parents again after we left.
The scent of things can evoke such powerful memories though! When I smell certain types of plastic it reminds me of getting a new doll for Christmas when I was little and the smell of it when I opened the box.
Thank you for sharing this! I'm sorry your lilac bush was destroyed but nothing can take away your memories:)

What a sweet poem and story! I am very sad for you that the lilac bush is no more too! It is never too late to plant another one though. We have planted five in the past couple years and I love them! They all had flowers this year. A white one, light lavender, two shades of darker purple and one lacy lavender. My favorite spring flower!!
