Lilacs welcome spring and early summer with their fragrance and beauty. Their bouquets fill our homes with the scent of nice weather and sunshine. That is why I chose it for my flowering shrub (tree) picture in the Gardening Gone Wild~ Picture This Photo Contest. Head on over to see all the rest of the entries. There are some spectacular photos there.
That shook their purple plumes,
And when the sash was open,
Shed fragrance through the room.

Hard to believe but it is already the middle of July.
My gardens have filled out quite nicely even though it has been a very cool, wet summer for us in Upstate NY.
