Lilac snow

I took these photos last Sunday, June 2nd. The lilacs were at their peak, looking and smelling gorgeous!

I just noticed that bit of blue sky. We sure haven't seen much of it since... or all spring, for that matter. I am soooo Vitamin D deprived!!

I played with camera settings a bit:

Here's what a week of off-and-on rain, and then all-day rain Saturday, with heavy rain Sat. night did to those beautiful bushes:

So much for the pretty flowers. Still beats the white stuff, though, doesn't it?!

Oh gorgeous! But as with a lot of spring blooms, gorgeous for just a moment. Nice photos!

Oh lilac's are lovely! They're so fantastic and pretty! I have a tea party china pattern called lilac lane. Luke and I have so many allergies though that we'll likely never grow them.
