FIVE ON FRIDAY – LILACS IN TOWN

IMG_5712_1640sm

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.

    I’m inhaling! I love the scent of lilacs. My old-fashioned are done blooming; now the dwarf Korean ones are in bloom, but they don’t smell nearly as wonderful. Great shots! I could just bury my nose in those.

    Your lilacs are beautiful… mine are long gone.

    Mine are long gone too, but I only have the common ones, not the hybrids that bloom later. Your pictures are lovely and will be great to look back on, in chill February, to remind yourself that spring will come again.
