  4. Lovely, lovely shot and quote! Lilacs are so fragrant. About 2 or 3 years ago, I had to cut mine back and this spring a few flowers appeared. I was so glad they came back. I knew it would take a few years for them to do this, but still it was an awe moment. :) Thanks for hopping by this morning. Have a happy WW!

    1. We had some lilac bushes when I was growing up, and since no one pruned them, they turned into trees! Still, it was great seeing (and smelling) those beautiful flowers each year. :)

      Glad yours have come back. What a wonderful sight that must have been!

      Happy Wednesday. ☺

    1. I just noticed these lilacs a day or so ago (it's my neighbor's lilac bush.) I hope they stick around for a little while longer. :)

  6. Lilacs are my most favorite scent of all, and they are purple - also my favorite. Win-win! Your photo is beautiful! :-)

    1. That's too bad. The one in the picture actually belongs to my neighbor, but my daughter and I are trying to convince my husband that we need one, too! ;)

  24. Those are gorgeous! My boss was making corsages at the restaurant last night. I think those would have been the last, needed touch, to make them perfect.
