My lilacs are BLOOMING!!!!

I'm not much of a gardener...love the flowers, herbs and such. Just can't say that i get that doe eyed look others get when they talk about pulling weeds. (same thing about those crazy runners and their zone) lest i digress...But i love lilacs and lavender.

The lilacs on my huge plot (*note sarcasm) of land (maybe 7,000 sq ft) are plentiful. I've been moving them around with each new home since i got married. They came from my grandparents farm and their hundreds of years old. I think i like the memories attached to the story as much as the plants...but ohhhhhhhh lala that fragrance.

What's bloomin where you live?


**thanks Bren...she said the pink beauty flower is definitely a Christmas Cactus..one mystery solved...
"For we are the sweet fragrance of Christ unto God,
among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing" (2 Corinthians 2:15)
Live lovingly, just as the Messiah also loved us and gave himself for us as an offering and sacrifice, a fragrant aroma to God.

Love your lilacs - I've got a couple crocus just coming up - the lilac is showing it's first signs of life, maybe another month or so before the beautiful fragrance is released :) I will just have to enjoy your pictures for now!

I am a little further north of you, so right now it's just daffodils for us. But I did plant a lilac bush last year and I am so looking forward to it blooming for the first time in just a few weeks- love the fragrance!

I love lilacs. Mine here in Michigan are far from blooming. I was excited to see a bit of green on them! LOL

Oh not much...
We are in the thick of such heavy drought so not much blooming at all!
Though being bushland there are a few wildflowers around They seem to survive any conditions
Your Lilacs look gorgeous.

Lilacs are my absolute favorite flower...equal to Lily of the Valley in scent.
What is blooming here? Nothing! Not even a crocus yet! Will Spring EVER come???
