Money does grow on trees.

Money Tree
When we were little, we’d collect lilac leaves as money. Thankfully for us — we had a crazy large quantity of lilac bushes.

I don’t know how it started, the lilac leaves = money thing. Maybe from hearing that money doesn’t grow on trees or something. Or maybe from the depth of one of our imaginations… (I have no idea who’s idea it might have been) or maybe it wasn’t our idea at all — did our parents play with lilac leaves and call it money too?

What will our children do with lilac leaves? What childhood memories are they going to create and keep with them forever – such as this one? Isn’t it incredible that we’re allowing them the freedom to play and imagine things?

  1. I love lilacs. I spend most of the spring crossing roads to smell them. Love the pics on this post as well. Hope you are feeling better.

  2. Hi Annie, petite pause du jardin et de la cuisine où je prépare le gâteau d’anniversaire de Poune…. j’imagine qu’elle n’oubliera pas de sitôt celui-ci. À trois ans, je crois bien que c’est à cet âge que les enfants commencent véritablement à imprimer sur leur disque dur leurs souvenirs… anyway, les lilas sont déjà presque tous fanés… j’irai voir derrière le garage s’ils en restent des cueillables… Sinon, ce sont les merveilleuses pivoines qui s’épanouiront bien vite, elles étaient déjà ouvertes….il y a trois ans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PS: je crois bien que j’ai perdu ma caméra ce w-e lors d’une randonnée en forêt (grrrrrrrrrrrrr). Et toi, photographe professionnelle, quel appareil utilises-tu et que tu pourrais me conseiller. Écris-moi un courriel si tu as 2 minutes pour me partager ta connaissance du sujet.4.
