Its spring:))

My followers know that I love lilacs...I shared lilac paintings that I made...This year I would like to share some beautiful photos of naturel lilac. Yesterday, we went to our friend's lovely farm again. I got so excited, it was lilac time and their back yard was full of lilacs. I know they are always lovely on their own bunches but their wonderful smell covers our home right now. We had a small lilac tree at the back yard of our home at my childhood. It was a two storey home and we were living at the second floor, however, it was big enough to reach our balcony....Istanbul were covered lilac trees in my childhood, there were special smells of each month...lilac, magnolia, mimmosa....roses, honey suckles....Now, everywhere covred with huge buildings, we have all comfort , hand made peysage views but there is nothing related with special smells of nature!!!

This close-up photo shows their beauty.





To sit this here and feel wonderful smell of lilacs was great.


This lovely&lonely poppy was looking great among all those green things.


Another close-up photo, itsn't so nice???


It was great to see poppies when arriving our friends farm. We totally forgot the important symbols of each season while living in big cities...I always say, I would love to live in county without hesitation...

We have two Lilac bushes in our yard. I would love so much to cut some off, but due to someone with allergies in the house couldn't take the chance. I do offer them to my neighbor to enjoy. We have had so much rain lately that they are now done blooming. Oh how I will miss their lovely fragrance. I'm glad you are enjoying yours.
