The Lilacs are Blooming!!

I love it when the lilacs bloom! We have some in the purple family, above, and then one we planted by our house that is supposed to be yellow, below. Have you ever seen a yellow lilac? Well, I can't say that I have either, as this one blooms PINK!! :)

The Sweet Williams are blossoming in the front flower bed....
And the cherry blossom tree that we planted last year, survived the winter and has beautiful pink blossoms!

My oldest, Andrew, had a birthday Thursday. Here he is at my mom's house with his gf Allison. My mom's birthday was Sunday, so we celebrated them together.
Hope you are having a happy week!

I LOVE lilacs.. We have several trees.. mostly purple and two white. I would love a pink tree! our neighbors have really dark purple ones that are pretty too. I love bringing in armloads full of them to put in vases all through the house! ours wont bloom for a few weeks yet! probably about the 3rd week in may!

I adore lilac, the scent is beautiful. I am loving everyone else's lilac trees so I went to a garden centre to try to buy a shrub today but they didn't have any. I've never heard of a yellow variety either.

lilacs are my favorite flower of all time. Sad we only get them once a year.
Everything on your blog is beautiful and springy!!
