I'm In Lilac Heaven!



I have been waiting so long to see the lilac groves in full bloom...I knew they would be beautiful but I really didn't expect the show that we are getting. Oh my ....the air smells WONDERFUL....you just have to walk out the door and you can smell those beautiful blossoms. I wish we could open the windows in the house but it's way too windy and the dust is blowing so not a good idea. I worked in the garden off and on all day and it is downwind from both groves...in fact one of the lilac groves is right along the vegetable garden fence! I would just close my eyes and I was taken right back to my Grandparents and Great Grandparents gardens...what wonderful memories that scent recalled. I will really miss the lilac blooms when they're done but I've taken lots of pictures to remember this wonderful time.
















I hope you have something in your garden that brings back happy memories for you.

Maura, Heaven indeed! How beautiful and how wonderful that someone planted these in the first place. I read once that planting a tree is planting something for future generations. How true! I wish your lilacs would last forever for you!

Be well ~Andrea~

Those lilacs are wonderful! Beautiful!!

We have buckbrush in CA that smells intoxicating in the spring. But it only blooms such a short time. :(

Enjoy your bounty!

I took Lilac pictures this morning. I hope to share tonight. I love your lilacs! Makes me want more & more & more (than our lone bush). Don't they smell marvelous? I hate to leave my yard in the mornings. -Tammy

Every time I smell a lilac I think of my Mum....it was her very favorite flower. I wish they bloomed for a longer period....Yours are sooo yummy.

Warm blessings,
Spencer

Your lilac's are gorgeous and yes, they do remind me of when I was a child and lived in Oregon. There were gorgeous lilac's completely covering our front porch...
Our lovely fir tree's and those lilac's are something I never got over missing...or the different apple tree's that grew beside out home. The Washington Delicious were just beautiful and I loved to shine them until they looked full of tiny stars...
Beautiful memories you brought back to me. Thank you so much!
Hugs,
Mona

Oh, I bet it does smell good! I can almost imagine it! I loved seeing you with the precious little goslings. Yes, your life looks good. I'd love to live on a farm! Have a nice weekend! Twyla

The lilacs aren't quite at that point here yet, but I did stick my nose into a nearly-open bloom today and had a heavenly sniff!
