Lilacs

One of the perks of having a yard is the beautiful Spring flowers! I have the good fortune of having two lovely lilac trees in my backyard that have been bursting with blooms. Lilacs are my fave for several reasons. One, they are purple and green (my favorite colors), and two, they are unbelievably fragrant! Just one of those flowers you can't help but dive your nose into to inhale the sweet scent. I picked a bunch of lilacs from my tree a few days ago and am still smiling at the sweet Spring fragrance that's filling my living room.

Right there with you. I have several lilac bushes, and I can't wait for them to start blooming! They are beautiful, but it's the smell that gets me. Happy Spring!

Lilacs are some of my all-time favorites! They are so beautiful. We had a few lilac trees until we had to cut them back due to disease. We're getting some new growth... hopefully in a few years we'll see some big improvements. In the meantime, I will sadly be missing them. Your photos are gorgeous! :)

We have four lilac trees in our yard and they're just starting to open. I adore them. They smell just heavenly. Can't wait to have a big jug of them on my kitchen table.
