And Sandy thought Lily of the Valley smelled good...

Well, it's official... Sandy has found his most, utterly most, favourite flower... ever!! Admittedly, he hasn't see every flower in the world but... these new ones are his Favoruites. He was sauntering on a new route for his walk and saw them from afar... Purple flowers! Not white. Not yellow. Not pale purple. No, these were purple...
In fact, they are actually lilac-coloured... and they are called... ta-daa... Lilacs! Sandy could smell them from a long ways off... and up close... well... let's just say, they are very, very aromatic (more so than Lily of the Valley)....
In fact, Sandy really couldn't get enough of them... one would almost start to think he was getting addicted to them...
He hopped from one fragrant clump to another fragrant clump, sniffing deeply (hopefully he's not going to inhale any bees)...
Can bears get "high" on lilac aroma? This little bear sure is trying!! And of course, Sandy wanted to bring a huge bouquet home... but after so many deep inhalations, Sandy was a bit hyper-ventilated and needed to lie down and take a breather... cradling a cut lilac branch as Mama went to work.
Back at home, the lilacs form a beautiful bouquet... beary beautiful!! And the house smells wonderfully of lilacs... Do you have lilacs where you live? Are they lilac-coloured?
