The lilacs are blooming this week on my property. I love this time of year. The sweet lilac fragrance wafts through the air like perfume. When mixed with the sunshine, cool breeze and blue skies of today the experience is heavenly. The blossoms are visited by many.
It's interesting to me that at certain times of year there is a strong show of a particular palette of colors in the garden. Even when we lived in San Diego Josh and I would call May "Purple". There the Jacaranda trees are in full bloom May into June.
Here, fresh greens against the pinkish purples of bleeding heart, pulmonaria and lilac are ruling the palette in my garden...
... although some white narcissus make a pretty statement in the mix.
