I nearly put "Neener, Neener" as the title of this post. Why? I have a friend, who shall remain nameless, that covets lilacs and has even been know to (ahem) purloin blossoms from others' yards! Oh my! Tsk, Tsk! ;-) I believe she's reformed now. I taunt you anyway, my dear friend! (evil chuckle)
I can't look at our lilac bushes this year without thinking of her. With all the rain and snow we got this year, they are just going crazy. I've never seen so many blooms.
Look at that huge bumblebee there. I think he was drunk on the fragrance. He never stopped working, but buzzed loudly at me when I got close -- as if to say -- "Mine! All mine!" Looks like you've got some competition, H.! ;-)
My daughter's bedroom is above these bushes and you can smell their perfume through her open window. What a nice way to fall asleep. Talk about joy in the journey!
