Outside: Lilacs

Every year I kind of wonder why I don't end up with more photos of the lilacs... and then every year when they bloom I remember why: it wouldn't stop raining... cursed weather.
It did, however, stop raining just a few times, and I think I got a good showing. These were some of the first branches to blossom.

On an etsy note:
I invite you all to check out my treasuries, which can be found here:

Funny how you have to do these things right away - otherwise - you think you'll do it later and you don't! Yep - I too, always wish I would take more pictures of the lilacs! They are one of the sweetest gifts of May (though they did bloom in April this year in PA ;-) Beautiful pictures!
