Judy that is breathtaking! Right up there with Debra’s shots! I love the saturated color – and the way I can smell those blossoms right thru the screen! My grandma had a HUGE bush of lilacs and the fragrance was intoxicating! Brings those memories right back!
Oh gosh, I hope the little lilacs I planted last month will grow and blossom like these!! 🙂 I put them next to the fence that seperates the front and back yard, and i have a great view from the family room window. Fingers crossed. Great photo.
I am so allergic to lilacs but I love to look at them from a very safe distance. Your photo is perfect!
Wow – I’ve never heard of that allergy but staying away is better than dealing with a reaction. 🙂
Yeah, their surprisingly hard to stay away from too. Yesterday at work I spent the morning in our rooftop garden with lilac bushes down at street level on two sides. I was hurting badly for the rest of the day!
Yours are fuller than mine and a deeper color. Beautiful!
I picked some yesterday and took a few pictures…they just started to become highly scented…I think they might get fuller yet..hope so! 🙂
A nice payoff for putting up with your rugged winter. So lovely.
So pretty! Reminds me of the Whitman poem, “When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d.” With many a pointed blossom rising delicate, with the perfume strong I love, / With every leaf a miracle.”
That’s lovely. Thank you. 🙂
Beautiful! I bet it smells marvelous, as well.
Best looking lilacs i have ever seen!! Hands down! WOW
I absolutely love lilacs and I really miss them! Thank you for sharing yours, they are beautiful!
