Lilac time in Istanbul

It is another lilac time in Istanbul! I just completed this painting the day before. It is Mother's Day gift for my Mom. Some of you should remember that I've also made her another painting last year with lilacs.
She had a few tear drops, lilacs always reminds her my grandma and their lovely home with lilac trees in the garden. I'm sure that most of you have same kind of old memories related with this lovely flower.
Tomorrow, I'm going to Ankara, I'm so glad that I'll be together with my daughter this year at a special day!
Wishing you all a Happy Mother's day!

It is been a while since I visited your log, your lilacs are beautiful! I share your memories of lilacs in the garden of my grandmother, she had such beautiful big trees with white and lilac ones!

It is so interesting that we all have wonderful memories related with lilacs from our past. I think lilacs are so special for most of us with their wonderful smells:))
