mother's day...

Back in the day, there was a lilac bush near our apartment in Chicago.

It was my go-to place for Mother's Day. 

I'd cut a bunch of lilacs, put them in one of my Mother's vases and present them to her as if it were an unruly beast that I had spent all day capturing. 

To be clear. These were pre-teen years. 

I later found out that the *wild* lilac bush that I was taming with my tiny little school safety scissors, was actually a neighbor's. They would watch me with confusion and some delight. BIG kudos to them for not shooing me away--which they had every right to.

If you can't find a neighbor's lilac bush to thin out...may I suggest a few picks from our angelo:HOME store bush.

Happy Picking,
