Today's Flowers # 75

My friend Luiz from Brazil does the Today's Flowers Meme, check it out. Come and join with your flower photos. Sunday at 2 GMT is the post time.

The Spring brings the Lilac and my neighbor has some neat ones. These purple blooms are not only lovely, they are also very fragrant. These were taken at the end of April.

It is hard not to capture their beauty.

They also have them in white but I like the purple.


You can see a lot of neat flowers at the above meme.

Lilacs are a wonderfully fragrant Spring blossom. I'm with you -- I like the purple variety best.

I have a white one that my deer friends also love. I've put up some lattice hoping all the buds won't be nipped away.
These you show are so lush and pretty!
