May Day

 Yes, we are still alive and well and I promise to do a more worthy update soon.  For now though,  some flowers for your May Day.

 The lilac bush is in bloom and it smells heavenly. 
  Always reminds me of my granny as she loved lilac smell.  Her perfume, her dresser drawer sachets, her bathroom spray all were lilac. It was a bit much as a kid and I can remember lilac headaches, but now, the heady scent  brings warmth and love.  A lilac hug. 

Wild Iris are everywhere.  Delicate flowers of spring.

  1. Amen to your last statement. Beautiful pictures. Our flowers will start to bloom in a couple of weeks.


  2. Beautiful flowers! And grass! And leaves!

    I remember when we had a spring...


  3. We have a lilac bush (I'm pretty sure); it blooms at the end of June! I love the smell. We should start seeing our wild iris in the mountain meadow late May; another one of my favorites, too. Breathe in the scents for us.

  4. The Lilacs are beautiful, is it getting as dry on your side of the state as it is ours...... I think we're in for a long hot summer. Was so glad to see a new post.....


We love to hear what you have to say. Keep your comments coming! Thanks.
