My lilac tree is bursting with blooms this year! The scent when I walk out the back door is almost overwhelming. I am not the only one to enjoy these lovely flowers, though, as you can see.
My next door neighbor’s tree is also in full bloom right now, competing with my lilacs. I think this is a dogwood but I’m not sure. The two trees make leaving the house first thing in the morning into such a pleasure.
If only they lasted longer. With the rainy weather hitting my area tonight, I can only hope that when I walk out the door tomorrow, I won’t see heavy water-laden blooms dragging on the ground.
But there will always be next year to look forward too!
