The Lilacs Have Bloomed

I thought the frost damaged the Lilac bush. But today I was surprised yet again. Lilac blooms appeared overnight. They are so fragrant. If they are still here when the hummingbirds arrive, they will enjoy these blooms. Spring has so much to offer almost every day. It has definitely arrived. Snapped this photo in the yard to share. More little things to enjoy.

I think that the scent of lilacs in bloom is my favorite scent in the garden. Ours will not bloom until late April or into May. Now I feel a need to order some lilac melts to enjoy inside.

They always take me back to home. My Mom and Grandmother always had these in the yard.

Our neighbors had beautiful huge lilac bushes between our yards. They sold the house and someone new moved in. He had all of the trees chopped down and ripped out the lilacs. My ex was so pissed.

My garden in Latvia was full of blooming lilacs and we love it every May. Even Sid enjoyed sitting on a windowsill near lilacs to get the scent on the breeze, You can see in the photo him on the outside window and the lilac in the background, Such lovely memories,

Spring has always been my favorite season. Rebirth. I should put some brown sugar water in my hummingbird feeder.

@CarolDM 't seems that i've one defyin' the odds 's i found some green leaves'n the one't the end 'f the house. very shockin' 's i 'twas goin' to chop't down/remove the ol' stump. not much's bloomed here, not e'en the bradford pear. perhaps a handful 'f flowers 'n that 'twas't. poor bees :( no worries, the spring wild flowers ('r weeds...dependin' how one wishes to see 'em) 've started puttin' forth some flowers. lilacs're 'pposed to be easy to propagate. i know mine came from my mamaw's, can't recall how i did such coz 'twas more'n 30yrs 'go :) ugh, where're the lil darlin's??? perhaps they know we're to've a chance 'f snow/rain mix this week 'n 're stayin' where 'tis warmer. oh this weather!

@crazyhorseladycx Green leaves are always a welcomed site. The weather is something else. Just glad it is not severe like in the parts of the country.
