Jules in the Lilacs

Hard to tell which is sweeter – the girl or the flowers.

The beautiful girl is Harry’s cousin – my sister Jennifer’s daughter – amongst the lilacs at the Highland Park Lilac Festival in my hometown; over 500 varieties of fragrant spring goodness.

The smell of lilacs always makes me a tiny bit homesick for New York in the spring.

    sweet indeed! we never had many lilacs around but one particular birdsong (and i don’t even know what kind of bird it is!) is what triggers my strongest NY memories. Also sun-warmed dirt & tomatoes on the vine.

    Walking through the greenmarket in NYC this week, the lilacs were everywhere. The scent is divine.
