It's Bloomin' Wonderful!

All of our flowering bushes are just GORGEOUS and totally WONDERFUL! Take a look! These are by our front door. The pink is so vibrant and pretty!




Late in the summer, the really huge fuzzy bees just LOVE these purple flowers!


I wish I could do a scratch and sniff computer screen for these! The lilac smell is honestly intoxicating! These are on the side of our house, and you can smell them when you walk out the front door. It's one of the best smells ever! I love it!



It's bloomin' wonderful around here! Thanks for stopping by!!

Lovely! I love Lilacs! I have purple ones, they remind me of my grandmother, growing up she had them lining the entire outside of her house, I like the way the scent blew my way on a breezy day... Gorgeous!

We lived in Spokane, Washington (the city was named the Lilac City) and each year the blooming colors and scents of the lilacs were everywhere! Thank you for the treat!
