They must smell wonderful in your house, Paula! I've always wanted a lilac bush. My Mom had one years ago and the smell was just intoxicating.

How beautiful! I can't wait until my bloom!! They are all budded out and I am so anxious to see the new white ones. Hope they bloom this year. :)

Jealous! Mine are still in the bud stage. You are just enough south of me. Say a little prayer that mine bloom before I leave.

Lilacs are SO beautiful and I love the smell of them but they don't grow well in South Texas. I guess it's too hot! We have other pretty flowers, but those lilacs are just gorgeous. I just popped in your blog and really am enjoying it. Hope you pop in and see me sometime. Happy Spring Ya'll from Houston, TX
