This morning at theSanta Barbara Farmers' Market, we had a new stand. On it were the loveliest lilacs I had seen in a long time. I had heard that botanists had developed a lilac that could grow in California and there it was in all its splendor.
When I lived in Minnesota with my parents, our home had lilac bushes lining the driveway and one side of the house. The fragrance and the color always enchanted me. I am so happy we can have them here.
