Babies First Lilacs





'...and these are lilacs.'

There is nothing more wonderful than Spring's first lilacs
Except maybe sharing them with the babies for the first time.

'Aren't they pretty...'

Beautiful...such a stunning scene you have created, and yet so simple. And what a joy to share the would world with your sweet little ones. It's like discovering it all over again for the first time, yes?

Beautiful - one of my spring favorites. Your "conversation" reminded me of when my two were babies and our walks through the garden, pointing and identifying. Now at 3 and 5, they're helping me with spring planting. The time goes so fast.

It's so true. Ours however, took so long to bloom, but were finished in only a couple days! I was actually kind of dissapointed. There is so much anticipation, and then just a few fleeting moments of enjoying their sweet fragrance. You're looks beautiful.

KAT said...

perfectly adorable how they are flowing from the vase! Love the photos of your lilacs

Absolutely. I couldn't agree more!!! I just took my babe for a lilac stroll and ended up filling the whole stroller with them. Happy Spring!

Thank you for sharing your lovely lilacs. Mine are just now leafing out and I am so looking forward to the flowers.
On our property we were blessed with an old lilac bush and the scent of them is magnificent!
Wishing I could join you on your lovely porch for a coffe and a chat.

What a stunning bowl of lilacs - the prettiest I have seen anywhere else on blogdom.
I have never lived anywhere where lilacs grew and I have always admired them and wondered about that heavenly scent.
Thank you for sharing these!

Lilacs are one of the few things that don't grow well in the Bay Area --- yours are a treat to see!

Fabulous. I just love lilacs and they are so hard to grow in California. I would love to have a big lilac bush like that. The bouquet is gorgeous.

Such fortunate babies they are... I'm sure they will grow to love the lilacs as much as you (and I) do. Your photos are always filled with such splendor and your posts with such happiness and appreciation. Thank you.

Such pretty photos! It is lilac season in N. MI too and my house is filled with fresh white and purple lilacs and smells wonderful.

I tried taking some pictures with my baby but all she did was try to put the flowers in her mouth. Too cute.

Happy weekend,
