[French} Le moi d’Avril = The month of April [English]
“April is the cruelest month,
breeding lilacs out of the dead land,
mixing memory and desire,
stirring dull roots with spring rain.” ~ T. S. Elliott
Tiny leaves and buds have appeared on the miniature lilac near the patio. I love lilacs (part of the unruly olive family). LOVE them! Did you know that, situated properly in full sun and well-drained soil they can last for centuries? Someday I intend to have a secret writing garden surrounded by lilacs where I shall where a yellow dress and sip tea, eschewing all forms of modern technology. Yes. I will do this.
