Lilac Time

 Today is the most beautiful our town is all year and it smells the best. 
 I had to take a detour and passed a home on a corner lot that was full of lilacs.  It was surrounded by a white picket fence which framed them beautifully.  I went back to get my camera.  The top pictures are that place.

Everywhere you look someone has a lilac tree or a lilac hedge, old lilacs, new, white, and several different shades of lavender.  This old tree is glorious.

Below is some of our own lilacs, I raised these from little twigs.  For those of you who live where lilacs don't grow I wish I could send you the scent. The video is trees belonging to a neighbor.

I am not kidding you..each picture makes me want to weep. They are sooo very beautiful. I am sure this must be what heaven looks like. And those trees are taller than the houses. Oh they are magnificent!!! Thank you so much for sharing. I realize I'm gushing, but, ohhh.......

Hi Diane, I'm so sorry I missed your birthday. I've been out of it the past week. So glad to hear that Daisy Mae has a loving home. The lilacs are gorgeous! We have heat and dust. Blah! Hope your day is a good one. Best wishes, Tammy
