The Lilacs are out in bloom here, one of the most common shrubs to see around rural farmhouses. Here I mostly see big old shrubs 20 feet high, in just 3 or 4 yards. And I still have pictures of emerging leaves I'm simply compelled to share with you.
My favourite leaves, and the first to come out are the Horse Chestnuts, soon to be in flower.
Do show the lilacs. We have one in the back that is light mauve I guess, and it is already checking out. Others that I see around are doing better.ReplyDelete
Our lilacs are on their last days around here, so it's wonderful to see yours, just coming out. Beautiful leaves, too. Wonderful display of springtime delights.ReplyDelete
And oh my how nice those lilacs do smell.ReplyDelete
I love the lilacs, the dark purple are my favourite. I also love the many colours of a Japanese maple. :)ReplyDelete
The smell of lilacs takes me back to my childhood. My mother had several bushes and I always get nostalgic when I smell them.ReplyDelete
I love the lilacs - their perfume takes me back to my childhood as mom had one in the farm yard. Hers were purple but most of the ones I see here in the city are white.ReplyDelete
We don't have many maples here, the key as your referred to it is new to me.
Lilacs are one of my favorites; occasionally I've seen one that's a shade of maroon, but they're really uncommon.ReplyDelete
I love lilacs and wish they bloomed for a bit longer. Ours are now finished so I enjoyed seeing the ones you posted today.ReplyDelete
Beautiful blooms and leaves.ReplyDelete
All the best Jan
