The lilacs are finally opening and wow.. the dark purple one has blooms that are bigger and taller than I've ever seen them! Dayle just cut this bouquet for me using his long-handled pruner for trees. The best blooms are on the very top, of course. :-)
The photo on top is backlit so I took this one closer so you could see the true color.
I brought in this one sprig of the white Lilac to put on my little piano stool next to my chair. I keep picking up the vase to smell the intoxicating perfume of the flower.
I love being able to bring in bouquets from our farmyard!
Before we cut the bouquet.. lol.
This is the white Lilac that we planted under the garden window in the kitchen.. I envisioned having the lilac perfume coming in the open window. The flowers aren't showing up well as they haven't opened up fully.
This photo shows the dark purple on the left, the white on the right and then beyond is the huge old classic lavender colored one plus another dark purple.
A closer shot of the big old bush. It's been here for a LONG time!
While I was standing on the deck taking photos the Hummingbirds that use our feeder were buzzing at me. Do you see the little guy in the lilac bush? I keep hoping they'll use the nest basket we hung up for them.
A close-up of our Peony, see the sweet nectar that oozes out of the buds? I can't wait for them to open!
That's where we are at the moment. What's going on with you in your spot on this spinning globe in the universe?
