Miss Kim is my BFF

Miss Kim has arrived for a short stay at my house. She has a very welcoming personality, showing off her true colors and filling the air with her presence. The only reason she has any competition for attention is her timing. Right now the attractive Bearded Iris are flowering and calling their own followers. Their dark purple heads emitting powdery scents are a tough match for Miss Kim, but she prevails with her overpowering aromas and abundant florets.

Just breathing the air when Miss Kim is present can put me into a swoon. If I am having a stressful afternoon, holding a branch up to my face and inhaling her sweet perfume puts me in a happy mood.

She greeted me with a 20 foot long display of light purple lilacs and made my arduous task of repainting every spindle on my deck railing pleasurable. Even though I spent 3 hours coating every surface with new stain, Miss Kim kept me company.

Later I brought a huge bouquet, overflowing with Iris and Lilacs, into the house. The fragrant scent spread through the kitchen and family room and seemed to make everyone calm and happy.

At the end of the day, I clipped a single branch and placed Miss Kim in a tiny vase by my bedside. As I settled down under my covers, I enjoyed her sensual aromas fanned by the cool night air and the sound of crickets chirping. It was truly a night of bliss. I awoke this morning feeling relaxed and happy because Miss Kim is still here for a few more days.

    These are my favorite. The smell of them makes me drunk. I swear it does. They are only in bloom for a short time. But I’m telling you there’s just nothing like the scent of a lilac.

    I eagerly await the lilacs every year. I am lucky to have a regular early lilac and a hedge of late bloomers. Because they only bloom once a year, I savor every moment of their short season. Who needs diamonds? Just give me lilacs!

    I remember when we lived in the Midwest and there was a highway called the lilac highway because it was planned with lilacs to shield the homes from the noise of the traffic. If I close my eyes and take a deep breath I can almost smell them.
