    I love everything about lilacs, the smell, the colour, the bloom arrangement on the tree, and in fact, I’ve just bought a dwarf variety as my garden won’t take a big tree and I had 4 lilacs in my former home and miss them so.


    1. I love them too! “Little Kim” is one of the few that will bloom, given our hot and humid weather! Cady

    Gorgeous lilacs! It’s a bit too early for them here but we can just make out the buds on ours so it won’t be too long …

    WOWZA…these are gorgeous. Mine isn’t even beginning to bloom yet. 😀


  7. My favourite colour 🌸🌸 … just beautiful!


  8. And they smell so good, too. When we lived in Ohio, we had one each of white, lilac, and purple. In Illinois, we had a different variety but when the windows were open, they smelled divine because they were right outside the window. Lovely shots.

    1. Yes their fragrance is awesome! You can smell them before you see them! Cady


  9. These are wonderful photos of one of my favorite flowering trees. Ours died a few years back, but a few shoots came back up and started a new tree. It’s not quite as strong or covered in blooms as the first one, but it’s still quite marvelous.
