Lilacs...


It has become chilly after two weeks of mid 70's and warm breezes~
The windows are closed so the 8 bouquets of Lilacs have filled
our home with Mmmmmmm beautiful fragrance!


We have many varieties around the yard...



Some are very fragrant~
Others, not so much...


We were thankful the storms didn't bring strong winds & hail!


I started most of our trees & hedgerows from existing trees,
Some are from my childhood yard, few are from friends yards.
I found a few little tiny plants at the Lilac Festival in Rochester.
The wee little ones that pop up beside the lichen-covered elder can
be dug up with care, transplanted & in few years you will have blossoms!


Wish I could add a scratch n' sniff button to my blog...

Thank you for stopping by to enjoy the flowers!
Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

Lilacs are my favorite flower...we have one and it produced a lot of blooms this year...but they weren't very fragrant. I wish you could add a scratch n' sniff button too!
