Lilacs Everywhere !!!!!!!!!






The lilacs are everywhere this year in abundance!!! I know I showed them to you before but they are still around can you believe it????

Aren't they beautiful !!! Can you smell them???

I think its our wet spring that helped them along, and the aroma this year catches you nose just about everywhere you go,its the best year I can ever remember for lilacs.

I just had to share more pictures with you !!

Gorgeous...it's a little known internet secret, but I've just had "aroma-blog" installed and so YES I can smell those fabulous lilacs!! Oh, OK, "aroma-blog" is all in my head (nose?) but it seems real all the same :0) I can still smell those blueberry muffins from yesterday!

Have a lovely weekend.

I can't believe you still have lilacs....ours in California are long gone! I have been enjoying some local sweet peas though that cost 5 cents each. I go over to the little "farm" and pick a couple of dollars worth at a time to enjoy. It is getting hot so I don't expect them to last very much longer....lilacs and sweet peas.....2 of life's many treasures...yum!

I love your photos. We have lilac bushes out side of our den I love to just open the windows so there scent fills the room.

Hi:
I came to visit via Mary's "Isabellas Closet" blog. Lilac's are so wonderful and beautiful!!! The fragrance is reaching me in Southern CA : )
I grew up with about 6 lilac bushes outside my bedroom window. How delightful; yours are!!!
Peace

The lilacs are gorgeous. Unfortunately I had a virus during lilac time this year and lost my sense of smell. It's only recently come back which meant I missed all that lovely lilac perfume this year!

I grew up with a big lilac hedge between our yard and the garden area. They always smelled so nice. I planted several lilac bushes a few years ago at my current home, but they're kind of puny little things. I hope someday they'll grow big like the ones when I was growing up. Yours are gorgeous.

I miss lilacs. There were lots of bushes in the little dirt road town I lived in a LONG time ago in Kansas.
While waiting for the bus in the mornings before school, we would pick them and shake water off of them.
I live on the Texas Gulf now, and there are NO lilac bushes.....
but we do have an avocado tree in our back yard.........
