Lilacs and Butterflies

I love lilacs..... and butterflies.   The heavenly scent of lilacs just shouts spring to me.  They bloom so quickly and then fade fast too.  We snip great bunches of them and put them in vases all over the house.  By the next morning there is always a shower of tiny blossoms laying around the vase, on the counter or tabletop.  But that's ok, we still enjoy them.

This cute little butterfly was flitting about and stayed long enough for us to snap a few quick photos.

Have a happy day!


  1. Okay, this may be the one thing I miss about Idaho. We had lilacs. You do not see them in the south.

    Nice shot! Great pic of the butterfly!

  2. Great photos! Looks like you have flowers blooming too.

  3. I love these photos and I love lilacs! I only wish the lilacs would keep a little longer.

  4. Oh, you're so lucky to have them blooming already! I was just out weeding this evening and noticed that my tiny transplant lilac is beginning to bud, yippee! I love spring!

  5. Oooh your lilacs are out! Ours are not out yet but I just LOVE the scent as well, it is just so pretty and fresh. Your photos are beautiful and I hope you had a wonderful day!


Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Please leave a message because I love to hear from you!
