Fresh picked Lilacs

We have a gorgeous Lilac tree in our garden. I usually sit here on the bench and smell the wonderful scent of these beautiful flowers..

Our neighbors have a few more trees with various shades of purple, but I am quite happy with these. The smell is irresistible and refreshing, a real burst of spring, early summer. I like the shape op these flowers also, like small butterflies. What is your favorite flower bouquet?

I have these in my garden too! They're SO beautiful - and the smell is just divine! I also favour white or blue hydrangeas - absolutely gorgeous!

Underbara foto Aina, man kan nästa lukta den underbara doften genom skärmen.
Tyvärr kan jag inte ha några syrenkvistar inne i huset, är väldigt känslig för doften och få omedelbart migrän av det.
Men dessutom mer njuter jag av de ute i trädgården.
Ha en skön dag söta du.
Kram Gerda

These are so gorgeous and your question is a tough one!

I love the look of a bouquet of peonies, but the smell of a group of hyacinths for sure.
Lilacs are right up there though in my top five list!

Such gorgeous photos.

Oh, that is a truly lovely bouquet of lilacs, and a beautiful photo! There is something sweet about white flowers, I think, and lilacs smell as wonderful as they look, so that is an added benefit to them! :)

I hope you are having a beautiful weekend!

Its looks good to see that you have gardening in your backyard. Vegetables and root-crops are also nice to be planted.
