Under The Lilacs

To be a heroine from a Louisa May Alcott book, Yren would have to be dressed very differently than this. But like Louisa and her ladylike characters, we love lilacs in the spring and we've been waiting impatiently for our free time to coincide with some pleasant weather so that we could enjoy them and take pictures.

So here is my darling under the lilacs, where who would not like to be this sunny day? If you're so inclined, you can read Louisa's book Under the Lilacs free on Project Gutenberg, preferably with an iPad so that you can read it properly under real, actual lilacs. And if you have none of your own, you are welcome to join us under ours. The scent is heavenly!

Ah, the sweet perfume of the lilac. You and Yren live in a beautiful place! The colors in this picture are lovely (and my favorite too!).
