I truly think that there is more beauty in imperfection than perfection, for it is the imperfect things that truly make us beautiful. --me

Lovely Lilac

Now here is a flower that I definitely know. I have a fondness for the lilac. Growing up there were lilac bushes in the back yard right outside the kitchen window. We actually didn't have much of a backyard because a crick (drainage ditch) ran right through it. As a batter of fact there was only enough room to run the lawn mower up and back between the garage and the crick. Anyway I remember playing in and around these bushes. My childhood consisted of making "homes" out of the bushes and trees that were in our yard and the neighbor's yard, well mostly the neighbor's yard since we really only had the lilac bushes in our yard unless you went on the other side of the crick (we did have a small bridge going across). I now have a small lilac bush in my yard. I wish I could say it was an offspring of the ones that I grew up with but it is not. Enjoy the picture.
