Lovely Lilacs


Hello lovely lilacs...I've been waiting for you.




For the sweet fragrance of your blooms.




For your delicate petals to open so that I could capture them and turn their beauty into art.




Though your blossoms are already works of art.




Not requiring any manipulation on my part...yet still I do.




Because I can't help myself.




Maybe because I am delirious from your heady fragrance which smells like sunshine and sweetness all rolled in to one.




We wait with baited breath for you to return each spring...and oh the wait is so worth it!




And so I will leave you just as you are, beautiful in your simplicity, able to conjure up childhood memories, and the perfect compliment to white pitchers everywhere!  Thank you lovely lilacs...until we meet again!

  1. Another blogger posted lilac photos yesterday. They are sooo sweet smelling. Don't see many here in our neighborhood though and I'm sitting here wondering why. They grow well in this area, just not a big item on our street for some reason. Are these photos taken in your yard?

  3. I have had a lilac in my yard for about 12 years now. It has NEVER bloomed. Leaves are pretty but really? NEVER!

  7. Your images are lovely. I grew up in Minnesota where they are abundant but now live in Texas where it is too hot for them to live. I really miss the beautiful show and the beautiful scent they gave out every spring. Thank you!
