Lilac Love

Who doesn't love Lilacs? We don't have any on our property, but there are some very close by. I love their scent and who can resist photographing their beautiful blossoms? I thought you might enjoy a closeup look at this popular June favourite....


Little petalled blossoms hang
In soft clusters of
Lavender lace
Adorning spring's greenery,
atching honeybees with
weet perfume.

I love lilacs! Their smell is so beautiful. We had them when I was growing up in Iowa, but we don't have nearly as many here in California.

I agree Linda. Who doesn't love lilacs? Ours are still not fully opened. Beautiful photography!
Have you ever been to the Metis Gardens near Matane Que.? They had the most beautiful lilacs...white, pink and of course lilac. Walking through a lane way of scented lilacs was absolutely magical.

I love your photography Linda. Your photos are so sharp and the colour quality is great. I look forward to seeing your new flag on the sidebar soon.

I've always loved lilacs. I agree that your photos are the BEST! I think you should make a collage of all your flowers... Gail M.
