Spring has finally sprung...well that's what it feels like for me. Once the lilacs bloom in my yard I count spring as being here.
The lovely bush outside my bedroom window has finally bloomed and with it come the fragrant lilac smell.
I opened all of the windows in my house on Wednesday because it was a perfect spring day. Bright blue skies, a gentle cool breeze. Perfect. With that gentle breeze blew in the lilac smell.
It's such a simple yet beautiful flower.
The dark blossoms give way to a delicate lavender-colored 4-petal flower. It's pretty.
Onto the backyard.
The flowering tree in the backyard gives me these pink/fuscia beauties.
For some reason only one particular branch flowered right now. So I only have pictures of that. I'm a little disappointed because last year the whole tree flowered...so I might have to do some researching as to the why?
