It reminds me of living in NY when I was younger, ha so long ago.
I have a old photo that two of my children stood under the lilacs and they were covered in snow and bent over in the fashion of these trees.
Tell me the couple walking down the lane, do you know them, were you together or was that by chance? It is kind of romantic looking. Great composure.

White? Works for me ;-)

Great design and choice of B&W, Goshka -- congratulations on your finalist when it was originally entered, andd good luck this time!

(Not sure about the Romance part -- in our part of the world, we've had 325 cm of the white stuff so far, and we're running out of place to dump it!)
