Lilac Nothing reminds me more of my Grandmother,Every garden we had as a child was graced by a Lilac bush, The smell of Lilacs transports me back to my 9 year old self,bring armfuls of Lilac into the living room despite mock admonishment."Its unlucky to have them in the house".Then we would sit and drink tea and eat crumpets,at the table smiling at each other, till the sweet smell made us almost giddy
