Lilacs in the Rain

My lilac is blooming and catching raindrops, brightening a dark morning.

The long drought is over. Not the raindrops on my lilac, but the photos from my Pentax DSLR, which I’ve finally had repaired and cleaned. I share multiple photos from my cell phone on Instagram each day, but they don’t translate well to blogs because my cell phone is small and inexpensive. The photos look wonderful on IG, but here they look blurry and bitmapped. Now that I have my DSLR repaired I can again take the photos I’ve been visualizing and feel happy to share.

I planted this lilac pretty soon after I moved in here 30 years ago. I think I may actually have moved it from the house I rented, though it was still a tiny shrub. It grew and bloomed and provided cover for the birds at the feeder just above it, but it came down when the tree came down on that side of the hosue in 2016 and it all needed to be cut far back. Anyone who’s ever had a lilac knows how long it takes for them to bloom when they’ve been moved or trimmed. Four years later I’m so happy to see it blooming outside my window, and the scent.
