Lilacs 2014

My lilacs are in full swing and smell heavenly! Last year I did not deadhead them for the first time, and they have more blooms than ever. So much for yard maintenance. 

I have one white tree too which has most of its blooms atop.  We need to thin out some of the bigger branches.

Not to be outdone, one of my three honeysuckle bushes has a ton of flowers this year.  The bees love it.

Enjoy your day!


  1. Beautiful. And they smell so heavenly.

  2. Our lilacs are blooming, too! But what has really gone wild this year are our lily of the valley. I'm so glad that spring finally arrived in the Midwest (although it was only 33 degrees this morning--ha!).

  3. Aren't the lilacs and delicate color! You sure have lots of blooms! Enjoy your day my friend! Hugs!

  4. Lilacs are one of my favourites! When we were away, the lilacs were in full bloom, here we just have a few buds...
