Childhood Memory

Memory is a child walking along a seashore.
You never can tell what small pebble it will pick up and store away among its treasured things.

~Pierce Harris


Do you smell the wonderful scent of lilacs and immediately think of your mother or grandmother?
I sure do.
Certain smells evoke such powerful memories and this one is heavenly.

Wonderful image and texture. Yes, this scent brings me back to my childhood too - one of my Mom's favorite flowers. You've captured it beautifully. Love your blog too. What a challenging and enjoyable project!

I really like the texture here! And a very nice quote to go with. Is there any way to send you a private message on your site? I haven't found any links. Since I don't have an OpenID account, I had to choose the google account. But this way the link to my blog doesn't show up when I'd like to comment.

We had two lilac bushes, one on each side of our walkway and oh I loved the smell. My mom always kept them in the house when they bloomed as well, so yes they bring back tons of wonderful memories to me. Keeping Shauna and family in my heart and prayers always...Hugs
