Lilacs Make Me Smile-ack
June 16, 2011 | My Jottings
Our lilacs are in full bloom now, and Sara cut some last night and brought them in so their scent can fill the house. I can’t actually smell their scent filling the house — I can smell them when I put my nose right into the blooms — but I think it’s quite a romantic thought to have the scent of lilacs filling your house, don’t you?
When I got up this morning and saw the lilacs in the bathroom, kitchen and living room, I smiled. Then I thought I’d write a poem about how lilacs profoundly affect my everyday life.
Up on the mantel, lilacs really add some style-ack
All over the house, lilacs really make me smile-ack
I wouldn’t mind, if the lilacs were in pile-acks
To smell that purple scent, I might even walk a mile-ack
And if you’re worried about the costa
Try decorating with a bit of hosta
Then you can sit on your couch and look at the lilacs and hosta for a little while-ack.
(Please! Hold your applause….)
Do you ever bring fresh flowers or greenery into your house? What kind? Where do you put them? What are your favorite living things to decorate with?
Sara obviously likes to decorate with flowers since she’s a florist, and I truly appreciate that.
I, on the other hand, usually decorate with living Schnauzers. Nicely placed, they can add dimension and personality to any room.
