Oh my! My favorite time… lilac season! Enjoy those magnificent blossoms and their heady scent.

Beautiful, Clara. My lilacs have just finished their blooming and my early irises have started to put on their show.💖😌

We have a Lilac plans on the side of CNN our house but we have been strikingly unsuccessful in getting it to be happy and bloom. When I was a child our neighbours had Lilacs which covered their side deck. The smell was intoxicating! I’m sitting near Mt. Shasta imaging that glorious aroma! Thank you.

I swear my phone has a will of its own! Plant and no CNN! The phone adds stuff for no good reason. 🤭

Lilacs are one of my absolute favorites! They remind me of my Mom and graduation time.

It is totally possible to be friends with a butterfly! Last year at the Del Mar Fair (aka the San Diego Fair) they had a butterfly enclosure that you could go into and it was amazing!!

It’s amazing how a scent can bring up a Midwest spring from 60 years ago.💜

Our lilacs are mostly done here but they were glorious while they lasted.

Mmmmmmm, such a wonderful aroma! We saw no zebra swallowtails last year in spite of our many pawpaw trees- I hope they return this year!
