Our 90F degree April Day opened up the Lilacs

About the only good thing about Sunday’s miserably hot Spring day was that the lilacs opened up!

Variegated Lilac.

    Absolutely beautiful!

    Ours bloomed weeks ago and then we had freezing night time weather and frost for about a week and no more lilac blooms — in fact no more blooms on anything. We’ve had unusually strong winds that blew all the tulips petals away and the brown, dried up petals on all the fruit trees are gone…

    • Yes, I was holding my breath on the lilacs and pear tree blossoms as we had a freeze and wind storm not too long ago. But they waited until it was all over before fully blossoming out. 🙂

  4. that first photo is a real stunner! what photo editing software/website do you use? it’s just heavenly. i’m pinning it! ps. have you ever heard the song ‘lilac wine’ by nina simone (jeff buckley does a great version too.) often when i smell lilacs i begin to feel drunk on scent, and that song kinda sums it up for me. 🙂

    • Thank you! 🙂

      When I bought my iPad my friend gave me a list of apps that I should “look” over…pixlr-o-matic was one of them! I have it both on my iPad and my iMac here at work. I think there are all sort of versions of it.

      The first lilac is just run through “metallic” and that’s it. I love that filter.


  5. Mmmm…. I can almost smells them!

  6. Um, I mean… smell them. *giggle*

  7. Beautiful flowers! I love the purple one especially, but both are just lovely! I love this time of year!
