Almost!


 
A few more days and our lilacs will be spectacular!



Our Japanese cherry tree will be in full bloom
 with hundreds of soft pink petals...


...and the white and pink dogwoods lining the driveway
 will be glorious!

Almost!

Don't you just love this time of year?

I know Laura....I can't wait for all my lilacs to bloom...I keep checking them...have sooo many blossoms this year (thankful I fertilized in the fall)! :) My Japanese cherry tree died 2 summers ago and I was too late getting one last year...getting one on Friday...just love that tree-so beautiful....

Yes I do love this time of year! You are a little ahead of us..........I have been able to get in the yard a bit, I have a lot to catch up on, many many wind storms since last October and with over one acre and a quarter I have a lot to pick up. Hugs Mary

I was just noticing today that my lilacs finally have buds on them - so I'm probably 10-14 days behind you! Lilacs are one of my favorites so I look forward to their blooms - especially on my nightstand. your photos, as always, are lovely!

My favourite time of year. We are a bit ahead of you in Virginia - all the blossoms have blown away and now the time for azaleas - bliss!
Enjoy every single pink petal Laura - I know you will.

Nothing on the lilacs here yet but some teeny tiny leaf buds.......

But I'm enjoying your photos now and I'll get to enjoy my lilacs around the end of May or the first of June!

Can't wait!

Ohhhh - I love this time of the year. Absolutely fantastic. Here it´s spring and we haven´t got so much flowers as you have.... But soon - I think - the lilacs will show their beauty here also. Maby in a month or two.....
Take care Laura and have a fantastic day!

Zita - Mlle Magpie said...

So much beauty to look forward to, Laura! Unfortunately we are way behind on the budding here and it will be a while before we start seeing flowers. Nonetheless, I am getting excited like you...

LizlovesVintage said...

Aww, so delightful! We are so behind in my neck of the woods. Spring is late! That Mother nature needs to get back on track. I'll post mine when they arrive. Thinking of you:)

Beautiful spring over here Laura!
Even if it were not in bloom you would create bloom with your euro chicness in all you create!

Love that that you post!
See you and your inspiration soon!

Love lilacs and sure wish mine would start blooming! Planted them 2 years ago and they are still not giving me any pretties :(

Gail said...

Yes, I do love this time of year. I walk more, enjoy the woods/gardens near my house, do more projects.
You seem happy with your decision last year to leave corporate world.
Happy Spring.
