Time Again for Lilacs

One of my favorite parts of spring is when the lilacs bloom. It’s that time again. Here is a pic of the riotous bush in the back of our yard.

We have one lilac bush in the yard that we planted long ago but it hasn’t produced much in the way of flowers, until this year.

The fragrance, especially of the purple lilacs due to their number, is heavenly.
