Every May I look forward to the blooming of the lilac bushes. Through open windows its perfumed scent finds its way into my home letting me know of Spring's arrival!
This is the monster lilac bush by the garage and side door. Every year after it blooms and the flowers fade I give it a nice haircut. However, you would never know it looking at the picture. It is at least 5 1/2 feet tall! I can smell its sweet aroma as soon as I open the door inside the garage that leads into the mudroom!
This next picture is funny. As I was taking the picture, a bee was swarming around me and I quickly snapped the picture trying to avoid any mishaps with the bee.
I guess I didn't avoid the bee entirely! Yikes!
We bought the house during the month of January when there were no leaves on the trees or bushes. I had no idea what kinds of bushes were in the yard.
Imagine my sweet surprise come May!
There is more than enough for creating bouquets.
So pretty in a simple white pitcher.
What's not to love about Spring?
