80/365 - First Lilac Buds

It is Jewish tradition to say a blessing upon seeing the first flowering buds of spring.

"Baruch atah Hashem Eloheinu Melech ha'olam, shelo chisar ba'olamo davar, uvara vo b'riot tovot v'ilanot tovim, l'hanot bahem b'nei adam."

Blessed are You, God, Ruler of the Universe, that didn't hold a single thing back in Your creation of the World, and created wonderful creatures and trees for people to enjoy."
