Love how they look but they make me sneeze. This distance is just right for me to be able to say oooh ahhhh!

I've got a little something-something over at my place for you.

There was a little girl who had a little curl...

So beautiful! I have a funny story about lilacs. I love them and always wanted a lilac bush. A few years ago I bought a "lilac" bush at the nursery and planted it by my potting shed. Perfect right? Well, I know it takes a few years to get blooms so about 3 years after I initially planted it, it finally bloomed. Only it was labeled wrong at the nursery - it is NOT a lilac bush. It gets beautiful big white flowers, but they are definitely NOT lilacs. I never did find out what that bush is, but it's still there, blooming every spring!

"When lilacs last in the dooryard bloomed" (poem by, I think, Whitman) always makes me think of spring, as does this wonderful capture. They don't last long. I was out taking pictures of them Saturday, too.

Lilacs take me right back to my swingset at the farmhouse where I grew up. Love them.

Grandma Nina said...

This is a beautiful picture of lilacs. Love all your flower pictures. Our neighbor has a lilac tree that just bloomed and it smells so good when I walk into the back yard.

I grew up in Pennsylvania. The winters got cold enough for Lilacs to flower in the spring. And I would look forward to their wonderful perfume. But I've lived in the deep south for over 30 years and lilacs don't flower here because it doesn't get cold enough to produce the spring blooms.

I can almost smell them! And no lilacs here in SW FL, so thanks for the old memories!

What a beautiful picture of your lilacs! They are gorgeous, but I can't stand the smell of them.

I like Augies thinking
At first I thought maybe you were refering to pausing the picture (me thinking it could be a video)...yes I was ready to pause it lol
