I have been waiting two years for this!
It's my favorite time of year. The time of year when my lilacs just burst forth in all their glory.
You see we've had some crazy weather the past two years.
In March of 2012 we were hitting 70 to 80 degrees day after day.
Not your typical Wisconsin March weather.
I loved it! But there was a price to be paid and I didn't love that.
You see the lilac trees starting budding like crazy.
Then April came along and we had several hard freezes.
All my beautiful buds were gone.
And come mid-May there wasn't a lilac in sight.
And oh how I mourned.
Because you see, it's my favorite time of year.
Well this year is different.
We have a bumper crop of lilacs.
See pic above.
Those are my dark purple ones.
And these are my true lilac ones.
See how they are bursting in bloom!
My bush back here is huge!
So I am filling my house with the sweet scent of lilacs.
Every vase, every tabletop and every corner I can find is filled to the brim with my blooming lilacs.
All my blue-ball jars are filled as well.
I wish you could smell them.
I wish I had a scratch n sniff button on here.
My house is filled with their sweet scent.
And while I was out cutting buckets of lilacs....
little Addison sat over on her Grandpa' lawn mower.
It seems to be one of her favorite past times right now.
She even pretends to get down and be fixing it...ha!
And after Grandpa got home from work he went outside and gave his favorite little gal a ride.
Oh Spring time...I love it!
Freshly mowed grass, the scent of sweet lilacs and...
My flowering crab apple just lit up today!
It's not the biggest yet...
But it sure is beautiful!
Thanks for visiting my lilac festival.
I hope you have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend.
