The wild lilacs are in full bloom. The overgrown shrubs we talk about clearing away every year are now delicate blossoming blue flowers. Of course now we want to keep all those shrubs so that we have the blossoms to look forward to. That works out nicely, as that means we can take something off our long to do list.
These bushes line our driveway (above), the fields and are throughout the entire valley. It's always so amazing how all of the wild flowering trees and bushes stand out after going unnoticed most of the year.
The wild lilacs are very fragrant so I have been making bouquets for the house. It's a wonderful summer-sweet fragrance...oh, happy heart, I truly love this time of year.
Happy flower watching!
