A to Z of Thankful Me: L

A to Z Challenge, Day 12: L


L is for Laughter to fill a room



And for Lilacs with heady perfume.



L is also for Library, with books galore,




And for guardian Lions outside my front door.

    1. Thanks, Clark. The lions remind me of Patience and Fortitude, the lions outside the New York Public Library.

  5. Your lilacs are so beautiful? Are you able to grow them where you are? They won't grow here and I have only found them at the florist once -- I can still smell them! They were my favorite growing up.

    1. Yes, lilacs do grow here. At least theoretically. I see them all over, but mine seem to grow well for a while then die. I'm crossing my fingers that I can get some established enough to bloom!

  6. That is the most beautiful calico I've ever seen! (Sorry, Ruby!) Love the laughing girl, too! I wish I had a lilac bush. My great aunt had a ginormous one outside her kitchen (easily 10 feet tall with a girth to match). Someone told her eggshells were good for lilacs, so every time she used eggs, she tossed the eggshells under the bush. Maybe it worked.

    1. She was a beautiful cat, but wasn't the friendliest. I was a bit scared of her, to tell the truth. :-)
