Believing that what we “put out there” comes back to us— I am not complaining about the weather anymore. (ok– how about NOT as much? Certainly that has to be an improvement.) Despite how much I complain, Mother Nature has still managed to bring the glorious spring flowers, and to her I am very thank full as I love LOVE lovvve the smell of Lilacs!!
This photo is fast becoming one of my favorites– with the exception of my signature it is SOOC (straight out of the camera) I took this with an 85 mm (not one I typically use) and I am liking the grainy look this came with.
The details of the Lilac up close is amazing isn’t it? Baby flowers….yum!
These beauties all came from a dear friend of mine who has such a fun yard.
Do smelling Lilacs take you back in time?
I don’t recall having bushes around our home when we were small but I love them so much— I recall breaking off some branches and walking home with them from school. Ummmm. What is it about smells that can make us actual time travelers?
Check out this nice video — I am always sad at how fast “woody” flowers fade — this will give you some tips on how to keep them around a bit longer.
Hope you are enjoying the beauty around you.
On Friday I will be joining Beverly at Pink Saturday — check her out.
