The most heavenly perfume crosses your path in Ottawa during April, May and early June. This is from the lilacs, one of my favourite flowers. They are delicate and dainty, evanescent.
When I was young there was a stand of white, pink and purple lilacs close to the house. I enjoyed going there to smell them, hiding under the boughs with the mosquitoes, flies and spider webs, feeling the flaky bark with my hands.

Her strangely corkscrewy body would be an interesting contrast to the statuesque elegance of her movements. Her tranquility and her grace as she danced with the wind to the song of spring would enamour everybody lucky enough to see her…
