My Blooming Lilacs
Hello everyone! Are you a fan of lilacs?
It is spring and the lilac shrubs in our garden are exploding with gorgeous and fragrant lilac blooms. And when I see our shrubs full of these spectacular blooms, I stop whatever I am doing, run outside to clip a few branches and grab my camera to capture their enduring beauty.
I LOVE lilacs!!! In fact, my love affair with this beautiful classic began twelve years ago when we purchased our home and I discovered a couple of shrubs on our property. It was early spring when we moved in and the lilacs were just starting to bloom. I didn't know anything about lilacs then but I knew that these flowers were something special just by their captivating beauty and glorious scent!!
After much research, our collection of lilac bushes evolved. It has grown from two to eight shrubs - we have added white and dark purple. I combine them with roses which turn into a dramatic floral display during springtime. And let's not forget the sweet-smelling!
If you don't already have lilacs in your garden, I strongly encourage you to grow them - they will give you years of beautiful blooms and joy.
Here are a few photos of the lilacs that picked from our garden - I enjoy.
