Day 170: Lilacs

I just can't resist posting flower photos. Here in Growing Zone 5, our WINDOW of opportunity to enjoy flowers is really itty bitty. These are a few shots of a lilac bush I planted a few years ago. The flowers only last a few days, but smell glorious! The photos are a bit blurry (a windy day), but I'm really going to enjoy these photos (or torture myself with them) come our long Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb, March and April days!

You really got in close on those buds! Too bad these aren't scratch-and-sniff!! MMMMM!

These are so pretty pink and I know how yummy lilac smells, so I'm sure you're enjoying every second of that!

I wore my most comfy Earth brand sandals on my first day in NY. Those sandals are amazing, but they were no match for 102 degrees with 100% humidity! My poor feet swelled like crazy (we walked 9.5 miles that day) and everywhere there was a strap, I got a blister! The sandals you see me wearing in the photos are Mephisto brand and were all I could wear after that first day. I'm going to get some Birks in the next week or so, on your recommendation!

And, I read a couple of comments you made regarding your dd. I don't know what's up, but sounds like she's having a difficult time. I'm so sorry to hear that and will pray for peace for her.

These are so pretty! I never really knew what lilacs looked like..I always thought they would be purple.
