Lilac Time





I am thinking of the lilac-trees,
That shook their purple plumes,
And when the sash was open,
Shed fragrance through the room.
- Mrs. Anna S. Stephens, The Old Apple-Tree

Sweet, sweet lilacs.

Those were my mom's favorite flower. Whenever I see them I always get a bunch and think of her everytime I look at them.

The lilacs have been extra special around my town this year, their scent is everywhere!

I had a hedge of lilac trees in one of our homes. It was so heavenly, I miss them!

Very pretty pictures of your lilacs! I also like how you made the edges of the photos have a dreamy quality to them.
