With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: lilacs

Sunday, May 4, 2014


 The sweet fragrance of lilac fills the air and it reminds me of the joy and blessing of friendship!

 It's been a perfect couple of days after some very heavy rain this week.
The grass is green, the trees are blooming and it is really spring! 
 It is also Raider's birthday
 I think he is feeling his 11 years

Enjoy your day out in the garden! There's nothing quite as nice as a day at home - no plans - just you and your fella and a happy, lazing dog puttering in the yard.
Our lilacs are still just buds - we need some sunshine of the non-liquid variety before they'll pop into bloom.

No lilacs here yet but there is no sweeter smell in the spring.

The weather has been beautiful here too, and hard to stay inside. Thank you for the lovely photos, especially of your gorgeous lilacs! How I miss having them down here in the south!

Your Lilacs are stunning. I can almost smell their beautiful fragrance here... It will be a few weeks yet before ours bloom. Everything is so late because of the continuing cold weather...It was 40 this morning!!

Thanks so much for your visit and wish Raider a Happy Birthday!!!

Your lilacs are delightful. This is a such wonderful time of year when the fragrance of lilacs wafts across the streets.

Just a little something from Judy said...

I dream of lilacs, and so you have no idea as to how much I enjoyed this post. Your lawn looks so pretty! One can tell you two work hard at making it all look so well manicured. As for the selfie, I am still smiling at you two doing that. With my imagination, I can almost smell that lilacs. Thank you!
