The Intoxicating Scent of Lilacs

With spring comes new energy, more light, a little warmth (when you live in Maine, anyway!), and the promise of being out of the house and on the water.

This weekend spring really seemed to have arrived on the Maine Coast, with mild air, blue skies, fluffy white clouds!   

I found myself noticing the “firsts” of the season...

First row across the harbor in the dingy.
   First wiff of the intoxicating scent of lilacs.
      First trip around the yard with the weed whacker.
         First planting of the annuals that decorate our summer deck.

and.. best of all...

First Maine Lobster dinner!!!
