"...the Madonna lilies in the garden sent out whiffs of perfume that entered in on viewless winds at every door and window, and wandered through halls and rooms like spirits of benediction."
-Anne of Green Gables, L.M. Montgomery
This is just how I feel lately - lilac perfume wafting through my windows and bidding me come outside. Lucy, you said it best.
And the world continues to grow around Casa de Hall...
