This is our first spring season in the house we're renting. The owners lived here before us. We're glad they're gardeners!

In the language of flowers, purple lilacs symbolize the first emotions of love, while white lilacs represent youthful innocence.


Have a safe and wonderful weekend everyone!! ♥☙.•*´¨´¨*•♥

Im Mai schlägt das Herz aus Flieder,

lila und weiß und süßer Duft

strömt auf uns hernieder

läßt uns träumen von lauer Sommernacht

in Gärten voll stiller Pracht.....

The lilacs were late this year and didn't seem to last very long. Beautiful nevertheless.

These are the lilacs that bloom first where I live. I can't wait for them to bloom this year. Taken from my archives.

Thank you to all my Flickr friends, for helping me reach over 4,000,000 views. I truly appreciate your visits and comments :)

Ok, ok!! I admit to spraying a bit of water over this bouquet of colour and fragrance!!

My daughter-in-law considering to chop down all her lilacs (3 or 4 trees) as she's suffering from allergy. I wish I could have them here.

Well, I was expecting to photograph my son's Junior High Track meet today but thunderstorms moved into the area and it was cancelled. So what do I do? I take my camera and macro lens out as the wind is picking up before another storm and caught these lilac blooms on a bush near my home. I wanted the blooms to be in soft focus, so I manually focused on the stem of the blooms on the left. This created more dreamy depictions of the blooms instead of a more photo realistic version that I typically shoot.

Thank you all for your comments and faves!





Getting a bit tired of winter. This morning, we woke up to windchill of -31oC and snow. It can get a bit depressing, so I have decided to dig for some pretty colors and cheer myself up. Enjoy! ;D
