Saturday Sparks Link Party 517

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 517! 

 Starting off today's party with a favorite thing!

Each year, I eagerly await the blooming of the lilacs.

All manner of jars, vases, and glasses are promptly filled with cut blooms.

The scent of spring fills our home.

For this, I am thankful.
