My lilac is finally bursting with blooms. It was a gift over 12 years ago. It didn’t bloom at all until the last 2 years, then only a couple. This year has lots and lots.

My friend Greg was just saying the exact thing…this is the first year it burst with blooms. xo

I love lilacs. And I believe you saw the whole section on lilacs in my April 2014 “Purple Passages” post with quotes from T. S. Eliot and Walt Whitman – http://plainandfancygirl.com/2014/04/12/purple-passages-a-dragon-and-a-gift-april-2014/
Perfect post for May Day!

I missed it, but ran over and enjoyed and left a comment. Hopefully some other flower, author & quote aficionados will make it over from here too.
I have some pressed lilacs from when Jon (25) was still in my belly.

Love lilacs, they bring back such great childhood memories for me. We had a big bush in our yard and would pick them for our Mom. Happy May Day. :o)

Great memory, Patricia! Thanks for sharing it with us and Happy May Day to you.

When I was young, our neighbor had a huge lilac bush that grew up and over our property line. We would cut some and bring them into the house. Not long before the whole house smelled of lilacs 🙂

It is funny, how many little lilac stories, that we all have. I fell more in love with the white ones while I was traveling this last week or so. Now that I am back to the beach cave, I’ll cut some more for that delicious smell.
