Lilacs!

The lilacs are in bloom 'round here.
Aren't they pretty? And they smell so good!
I love being able to bring flowers in from my yard.
Don't they look pretty lying on this lovely plate, given to me by friend-Lori. (Thanks, Lori!)
They're also beautiful in my favorite kind of vase-canning jars. ☺

I love the lilac's in my garden. And so did my neighbours horse who used to lean over the fence to eat the flowers!

Lilacs are my most favorite flower. Mine are from my grandparents farm so they are so special to me. I love that you have the white ones too. Inhale that scent -- mine should be blooming by next week.

they are so beautiful. mine are coming along but slowly and they are never as abundant as i would like. THIS is the only time i EVER contemplate 'steeling'. I would like to take my sheers and drive along to places where i know these people with humungous lilacs don't even care and i want to cut many many bouquets. they wouldn't even notice i bet. ahhh. i just wish mine would get GOING!
