These are all lilacs in town – took these photos when I was downtown to meet a friend for lunch on Wednesday. My lilacs aren’t this open yet – still mostly little dark purple/magenta balls in a cluster, although they are starting to open.
I love lilacs but they are so short-lived!
If mine don’t open soon I’m going to miss them when on vacation in the next 15 days.
That is why I am taking opportunities to photograph other people bushes.
Hope I don’t get the reputation of being a peeping lilac photographer as I jump out of my car and take photos of people’s yards. Of course, I do stay on the sidewalk, and don’t look in any windows – just at flowers.
