May Desktop Background - Lilac

I'm pretty sure my favorite thing about spring is the smell. Everything comes back to life after its long winter nap, and the air is filled with all the new smells that were dormant under the cold and snow. When I close my eyes and conjure up the smells of spring, the first thing I think of is the smell of lilac blossoms. Their bright, sweet smell fills the air around my house, and its the first thing I smell when I leave in the morning. Now that May is here, they're already starting to fade away, so I took some snapshots of them to tide me over until next year. Here's my favorite shot for you to use as a desktop background if you'd like. Enjoy!
