my favorite springtime flowers:
Lilacs. We had a huge tree (or two) on the side of our driveway that just overflowed with blossoms. I swear our whole backyard smelled good just because of that tree. Every year I would always clip a few and bring them to my teachers.
Daffodils. The brick sidewalk the ran up to our house was lined with daffodils. A nice greeting after walking home from school! I actually took this picture yesterday. The flowers are my suite mate R's. They are fresh from her parents garden and they smell so good! There is nothing like a natural air freshener =)
Hyacinth. We had them in our backyard near the garage. Ours were rather small and low to the ground. I thought they were so cute! On campus, there is some that has just bloomed right in front of the dining hall and it smells so good!
Tulips. A classic. And they come in so many different colors! We had a few of them spread out on the side of the driveway by the hyacinths. The fact that there were only a few in that particular area made them seem that much more special.
Are your favorite springtime flowers the same as mine and do they bring back fond memories for you as well?
