Bountiful Blooms - Lilacs Part 1

Do you have allergies?

 If so you probably want to stay away from my house.

Everything is in major bloom mode!

 As soon as you turn the corner you can smell the lilacs! It's aroma heaven!

The lilacs didn't just bloom this year, they exploded!!

I guess the whole not watering and just letting them do their own thing worked!

These ol' girls are still gorgeous after more than 2 decades...!!

 Back to the allergies...there are more blooms in the backyard to avoid.

Please enjoy these sneeze free pictures!

More beautiful blooms!

 They are like natures reward after a long cold winter.

I am posting part two of these bountiful blooms later. 
I think the wisteria below deserves its own post.

Thank you for visiting today. Aren't these blossoms gorgeous? 
I couldn't help myself, I just had to share them!
I hope no one is leaving with watery eyes or itchy noses!

Garden season is just getting started, soon there will be seedlings to share!
Have a wonderful day,


  1. Haha! I'm not sneezing but I sure like your flowers! Actually, to tell you the truth, I think I would rather sneeze and wheeze than NOT to smell the flowers! Yours are absolutely gorgeous! I especially like the lilacs and the wisteria - so beautiful!

    1. Thank you Vickie!! I love the flowers too...I am lucky I have no allergies!! Thx for stopping by!!

  2. Once I turned 42, allergies hit with a vengeance, Lori! I don't let them stop me from enjoying flowers or gardening though. Your lilacs are just stunning, as are the other plants in your garden. My neighbor across the way has two small lilac bushes planted around her condo. I'm going to ask her this year if I can take some cuttings. I just love the way it smells.

    1. Thank you Kathy!! I have some lilacs on our mantel and table, I love their sweet scent!!

    Oh my heavens!! Gorgeous! I'm so jealous that you have such beautiful lilacs right outside your door. They remind me so much of my late grandma. Brings back so many happy memories!
    Thanks so much for sharing,

    1. Thank you Suzanne!! My Grandma had a lilac bush too!! Happy Spring!!

  4. Wow! Such beautiful blooms for are way ahead of us here!


  5. Oh my goodness everything is so beautiful! We have weeks to wait before our blooms show up yet. I love the wisteria and wish we could grow it here, but winters like we just had would kill it off. Thank you for sharing at What We Accomplished Wednesdays. Have a great week!
    Blessings, Deborah
