I follow quite a few blogs these days.  I probably get more email from the posts that I follow than from old friends.  I think that is saying something about the lives we are all living.  One of my favorite bloggers is Cee who writes a blog about photography. –Cee’s Photography.

The other day she was talking about lilacs.  Lilacs are one of my favorite flowers. But in California, it really doesn’t get cold enough for my plants to bloom spectacularly.  Right now I’m in Southern France and in my garden is large lilac bush. I cut back several branches and plopped them into a vase.
