Oh, now, that's gorgeous! Looks like it smells heavenly, too.
Beautiful photo Gran! and I can smell those lilacs. Yesterday I was thinking of picking some of our white ones... will put that on today's list. Forecast here is for 70; hope you are enjoying your weekend.
I adore lilacs - but isn't it awful early for them? I always remembered them blooming mid May when I lived in Central Washington and also in Spokane. In fact, the annual Spokane Lilac Festival is held right around May 18th or 20th? Early or not, those lilacs are beautiful and especially in that lighting. I bet they smell heavenly too. My daughter when we was very small used to call them "goldilocks" plants. "mom... the goldilocks plants are blooming... can I pick some?"
SB, the aroma of lilacs is my favorite. I'll fill the house with bouquets today.********Thanks, Caffienated Mom.********Di, the sun is shining, and it's warming up. It will be another lovely day in the garden.********Kitsap, over a week early this year. Last year I had fully opened blossoms in a vase on 4/27. Ours are always ahead of Spokane.
Beautiful pic AG...I think we may have to wait a least a couple more weeks for ours to bloom.
Sunny, it's probably my favorite flower. I wish they'd last forever ;-)
Beautiful granny! So how big is your Lilac? Mine smell so good, I just love em! Need more....
Shawn Ann, I have mine pruned as a tree. You'll see it entirely in today's blog.
Blue skies and the fragrance of lilacs. What could be better. Beautiful.
Thank you, Hocking Hills Gardener. Nothing better, in my opinion!
Ya' know, I never even noticed the plethora of lilacs in my community until you posted about yours... This morning I received plenty of eye rolls from the 8yo on the way to school with my, "Oh! Another lilac!" "There's one too!" "Look at that lilac tree--it's huge!" haha!
Momma_S, they're really early this year...guess that means I can plant my garden two weeks early!
Oh gosh. I do miss the lilacs I had in Spokane when I lives there. Can't seem to grow anything except the Japanese lilac here and it's just not the same! In fact, I can't grow many of the flowers I had in Spokane.....it's too darned hot here for too long. I have to put up shade cloth so my tomatoes don't burn up in the hot sun here!
Zoey, have you checked out the new everblooming lilac? I'm curious about whether it's as pretty and as fragrant. If so, I'd sure like to get one.
