Floral Bliss #20



Beyond our back garden hedge in the neighbour's garden
 the trees and shrubs are in full flower.
 I only have to walk down the narrow lane by our house
 to see the lilac overhanging our shared wall
 and look up at the golden tassels of laburnum flowers.






I'm linking up with Ritta and Floral Bliss
 to celebrate the beauty of flowers around the world.

  2. The lilacs are just wonderful and your photos exquisite. Can you believe Linda that it is snowing here - not a lot but anyway. So ridiculous!
    Thank you for linking - enjoy the fragance!

    1. The stone wall is the only remaining part of a wall that had been built around what was once the estate of a manor house so we really appreciate its survival.

  5. I enjoyed seeing the lilac cascading that way. Mine may bloom toward the end of May. Hope that all our nasty rainy weather in North America (weeks and weeks of it) passes well north of you so you have a beautiful spring.

    1. Glad you enjoyed seeing the lilac and you'll have the pleasure of yours in flower later this month. Although it has been cold we've had little rain for quite some time. That could change and be welcomed as the reservoirs and river levels are low. On the other hand, I hope you get some drier weather.

    1. Lilac is another one of those flowers that I would miss if I lived in a place where it didn't grow. I appreciate the mature trees growing so near to our house that they almost form an extension of our own garden.

  7. What a delight to see all that beautiful lilac. It is certainly something I do miss living on this Island, the lack of trees.

    1. I would miss trees, but you have other natural resources to enjoy where you live now.

  9. I have a lilac tree in my garden but the flowers are much darker than the one in your photos, it's right outside my bedroom so the beautiful scent wafts in when I open the window. Laburnums are so pretty too, we had one in the garden when I was growing up and I was forever being warned that they're poisonous. It's hard to imagine that something so beautiful can cause so much harm.

  10. How lovely to have a lilac tree growing right by you bedroom window! It's sunny here today for a change and the fragrance of flowers seem to be even stronger. As a young child I was also warned about laburnum being poisonous. I hope children still learn about poisonous plants and berries when they're young.

  14. Swooning over the scent I am imagining in your walk and flowers. Oh lilacs, I just love nestling my nose in close and sniffing. Delicious!

    1. I do appreciate the flowering shrubs and trees growing near our house. The neighbourhood looks beautiful in the Springtime. The fragrance from flowers is heady, especially from the wisteria and, of course, the lilac.

    1. We're blessed to live where we do, Nancy. We can look out of the back windows and see greenery from mature trees. We don't have to go far to enjoy beautiful flowers.

    1. Lilac time is very special. I'm sorry I still can't comment on your G+ blog account, but I do read your news and wish you well. (I hope you read this as I know some bloggers don't return to read my responses to kind comments left in the comment box and I don't think you get them by email either).

    1. The neighbour has a large plot that has been left to grow wild. We appreciate the greenery and flowering shrubs and tree blossom. It's also a haven for wild life.
