I just love lilacs. They are so beautiful and fragrant. They perfume the whole area with their sweet fragrance. The only downside is they are not in bloom for very long. One day they are are showing off their bright pinks and purples and then, poof, they are gone and we have to wait for the next season for them to return. But they are in bloom now, and I am thoroughly enjoying it too. We have them in all shades of pinks and purples this year.
These are in my own front yard. They just smell Heavenly.
Always take time to smell the roses, or in this case the lilacs. It will always put you in a happy mood.
