My lilacs are just starting to bud. The buds are so high in the tree right now, it would be hard to take photos of them without a ladder! I wait all year for lilacs, wish they could stay longer than they do!

Mimi said...

Oh I love lilac, it definitely speaks of the start of sumer to me, as it blooms here in May.
I love the light in these, Carletta.
