I Smell the LilacsMy lilacs are in bloom. I love them. They make a great display and smell so nice.(click on photo to enlarge)
A bouquet I brought indoors to make the room smell so fresh and pleasant.
I have two mature bushes, on either end of my verandah. The one above gets morning sun and is on the east side of the verandah. It has smaller blooms which are slower to fully develop.
This is the more fully emerged bush on the west side of the verandah, which I must pass to enter the house. There are many more blooms than last year.
To sit on the porch on the swing with Heidi is always pleasant but now we can also smell the lilac sand watch the pair of hummingbirds darting around to feed at the feeder.
I have two smaller bushes which be a couple of more years before they put on much of a show.
One is white and the other is another blue one.
It is a lovely day today. The warmest so far. It may reach 30 C. Might I be tempted to go for a swim. Humm! the water will still be quite cold. It will be painfully refreshing. I may wait a couple of weeks. :)
