Is there a more lovely bush for spring than the lilac, in fragrance and in appearance? Not to me.
This was certainly a lilac year! Mine are full and the aroma is heady when I go outside . . . and I do have lots of bouquets in the house!
I'm so glad I got these pics when I did. We had several days of rain right after they bloomed, and then they turned brown.
It's not quite lilac time here, but when they bloom I love to bring armsfull of the inside.
What color are yours?
I can't wait for lilacs! I can't wait for any blooms! Such gorgeous smells.
I try to bury my nose in the bush, when the bees aren't around.
I can almost smell the lilacs.
Wish they were still in bloom. Time is so short.
Gorgeous! They'll be ready soon here too-enjoy:@)
My Favorites!! I have to wait until at least the end of May, but who knows with this delayed Spring.
Hopefully yours are blooming now.
I can almost smell the sweet fragrance of your lilacs all the way down here, at the bottom of the world...they are gorgeous!!
LOVE lilacs! Ours won't be blooming for awhile yet. Nice to see yours.
Probably by now yours have bloomed and faded. Spring flower time is way too short.
I took Belle walking the other night and the air was filled with beautiful, sweet lilacs!
A beautiful scent!
One of the best Springtime Fragrances . . .
Oh yes, one of the best fragrance combinations ever! And when accompanied by birdsong, it couldn't be more perfect.
Spring flowers and birdsong... not much can compete with that!
Oh so pretty and can't wait for ours in the UK to start blooming. x
I have been away, but I assume that they have bloomed by now.
Oh lucky, lucky you! Ours are "thinking" about budding, but spring is taking its sweet time in arriving in Wisconsin this year!!
I'm sure that you are enjoying your beautiful blooms by now.
A beautiful spring flower!! Enjoy and happy weekend! xo Heather
Thank you, Heather!
Lilacs are my favorites. We're nowhere near lilac time, so I'm especially glad to see your beautiful picture. I almost named my blog "Lilac Time."
One of my favorites, too!
Oh those smell soooooooooo good!M :)
Do you have any of these in your garden, Melinda?
Lucky you! Our weather hasn't calmed down long enough for things to know which season it is. I have buds on my lilacs, but it will be a while before I can enjoy those wonderful scents you've mentioned. Enjoy!
I've enjoyed seeing all the pretty flowers in your garden this spring, Dianna.
Can't wait till my lilacs bloom! By the way, I nominated your blog for a shine on award, http://happy-as-a-lark-designs.blogspot.com/2014/05/shine-on.html Don't worry if you can't participate, just wanted to share your blog! :)
Thank you, Laurie. You are sweet.
How can anyone not love lilacs? They smell heavenly.
Yes, they do. :-)
I just love lilacs. These are so lovely.
Thank you, Linda!
