When I was a kid, my mom and I would drive through the alleys in the neighborhood. She would stop, I would jump out of the car and - ahem - steal armfuls of lilacs. We never took too many blooms from one bush and we worked quickly and stealthily. I thought of my mom yesterday when I spent - gasp - $15 for a bunch of lilacs. It was money well spent.
