Lilac Heaven.

There is a plethora of lilac trees bushes around the LC.  I was pretty excited to find them all when we first moved here.

These bushes go right up past the roof of the veranda.  I get to see them every time I stand at the kitchen sink.  So, not very often. 

Their wonderful scent wafts through the kitchen when I open the window.

We only had one purple bush but a couple of years ago it sprung a baby and so now I have two.  This is the back garden.  It's very quiet and secluded there.

I picked a bouquet for you.  We've given a lilac bush to everyone who asks for one.  Stop in for yours. Please note that photo is in no way styled.  That's all she wrote. Bye.

Not having to stand at the sink is appealing, but not nearly as your garden. I could use that fireplace of yours lately. Can barely type with these icicle fingers of mine.

My fingers are icicley (the spelling on that's a bit dubious) just like R&S's! It's freezing here.

I'm coming over for some flowers this afternoon. Does Sassy eat flowers?

I can't believe that photo's not styled! How can your house look that good without effort?

I never really realized you had such an amazing yard with such big beautiful trees...gorgeous Deb.

I love the way you makes me chuckle.

I have never had lilacs, but pinch a few from my neighbors once in a while.

I love lilacs!!!

May I please have a lilac bush please? White lilacs - how gorgeous. Is their scent stronger than the purple? Those Queenslanders whingeing about the cold...

Deb said...

Australian contingent- There will be no sympathy for your icy fingers on this side of the world.

Zigsma - I'm digging one up as we speak. My nose is no authority but I think all the lilacs smell the same.

Sarah - I'll whip up some Monkey Tails tout sweet.

You have quite a sizable Australian contingent to this blog.

I'd like a post where everyone introduces themselves. Maybe I'll do a post like that too!

Library. Still here.

My lilac blossoms went too quickly. Hardly had time to enjoy them at all? Any ideas why? We did have loads of rain.

You had me at 'plethora'.

And I think my son will be travelling the world in about 6 years. He'll drop by for the bush.

My neighbors have lilacs and they have just been divine this year. I posted a picture of them on my blog today.

They're beautiful, even if you never get to see them.

And now, I have another reason to head east. Can't wait! : )

Gorgeous!!! I love lilacs!
Hope y0u are having a great weekend.

I'll be by to get mine tomorrow! :-)

Very pretty. I also like your unstaged picture. Those are the best.

I used to make a lilac bath soap. It was heavenly, but never as good as the real thing. Don't they smell wonerful? Too bad the season is so short. That's probably why they're so special :-)

We inherited several lilacs with this house and I LOVE them! My only complaint is that they bloom too short a time.

I keep telling Scott that we need a lilac bush - but he resists me! I love love love these photos! :) Gorgeous gardens!

I took pics of my pergola all dressed up this afternoon (with the 2 hour lull in the rain), and I hope you'll stop by and take a peak! :)
