It won't be long now!






I have been waiting for nearly a year to see the lilac groves on our farm bloom. Last year we moved to the property around the middle of June ...too late to see any lilacs in bloom plus we had a deep freeze in early spring that killed most of the lilac and fruit tree blossoms. As a result there were really no lilac blossoms for the former owners to enjoy before they moved and certainly NO fruit after we moved in. This year however the fruit tree's are COVERED in blossoms and best of all for me....the lilac bushes have exceeded my expectations and are absolutely bursting with blossoms about to open. For the last two days I have been watching the groves carefully and have noticed that some of the buds are starting to open...I'm THRILLED! I even stuck my nose close and OH MY....the aroma is wonderful...if I could just bottle it up I'd be very happy. I can just imagine what it will be like when the whole grove to the south and west of us is in full bloom...I can't wait!!!

There's a lilac outside the dining room window - and the best thing is to have the window open in the morning, just as the warm sun hits those blossoms - heaven on a branch!

What a way to build the anticipation. I can almost smell them from here, and I can hardly wait to see the beautiful pictures you will take to share when they are fully blossoming.

My Nana had huge lilac bushes surrounding her entire back yard. I remember playing out there when they were in bloom, and the whole yard smelled heavenly :)

Yes, lucky you!!!

Oh my goodness! Be sure and keep us posted with photo's as the blooms come along. In Oregon our front porch was covered with lilacs when I was a child...and I have wanted some ever since. It looks like you are going to have them in abundance! I will just have to enjoy yours! Thank you so much for sharing them with us!
