Now is the rainy time of year for Spearfish. While it often ruins plans for great outdoor adventures and bbq’s, it does bring beauty to the area. The grass is growing, the flowers are blooming and the lilacs are budding.
I think the lilac is a staple of summer for Spearfish. Spearfish has so many lilac trees and bushes that at times it seems like the whole town is filled with their sweet, thick scent. They’re beautiful flowers come in pinks, blues, purples and whites. I have two lilac bushes in my back yard and most of my neighbors have lilac trees or bushes as well. When they start blooming it means summer is right around the corner, and I love them for that.
So don’t let these rainy days get you down. Just look for the lilacs and smile, because you know what’s soon to come.
