Can't take a picture of a smell

This is from a large lilac bush (so I'm told - to me it's just a bush with white flowery things) at a corner of our property.  A few days ago Patti cut a few pieces off and stuck them in a jar with water, and now the whole house is filled with it's odor fragrance. (I need an emoticon here so everybody knows I'm smiling).  It has assumed it's place with assorted other plants we have. 

I'm partial to succulents myself, there's something about them that makes me wonder. But I digress.

It's actually pretty nice.  It has a strong fragrance and I can see how something like this could trigger allergies in people who are sensitive to such things.  But we're not, so it's nice, sort of like nature's air freshener.  It's been on the table for 3 days & it won't last much longer.  But on the other hand, there's plenty more where that came from.

I really know nothing about lilacs.   

It is impossible to take a picture of a smell, so I can't do it justice.  So just imagine.

Grace: Well the blooms are no more, but it was nice while it lasted.
