One of my favorite flowers are lilacs. These are from one of the lilac bushes in my backyard. I love the gorgeous color, the heavenly scent and the delicate flower-clusters on every branch. Spring is my favorite time in the garden. It's when all the surprises that my DH planted over the years burst forth and show themselves. It's funny how every year the same plants bloom and yet I get so excited by them as if I were seeing them for the first time. I consider these as little gifts from my husband that keep on giving year after year.
