favorite spring photos. It was a May Day basket filled with lavender lilacs and spirea. But soon after that photo, my lilacs met an untimely death with a too-close encounter with some weed killer.
Randy knew that the lilacs were among my favorite backyard flowers, so he's been trying to reestablish them ever since. This year, for the first time in five years, I have lilacs again.
Randy also planted lilacs south of our drive. And while they aren't blooming yet, the sturdy green plants dappled in sunlight and shadow are a reminder of love and caring.

The lilacs bloom under the canopy of a huge tree in our backyard. For several days, I'd noticed the play of light and shadow as I walked past the bathroom window. I went outside for a closer look. The new green leaves were like green lace against a blue sky dappled with springtime morning sun.
This morning, we are thankful for 1.75 inches of rain that fell Saturday and Sunday nights.
