Lilacs and Iris

I have the most wonderful smell wafting around my house . . . Lilacs - the Iris don't have a fragrance. These pictures were taken yesterday, and there are many more flowers today. I will probably take a few more pictures if you can bear it!

These were taken for my room mate who moved right before all the blooms came out. There were tons of buds when he left two weeks ago, but he missed the blooms. I will send him a link to my blog so he can see them.

Hope every one is having a great Memorial Day and remembering why we celebrate it.

Beautiful flowers! I, too, love the smell of the lilacs.

Enjoy your day.

I can almost smell them! Lilac's and Iris' are two of my favorite flowers. I was just saying earlier today that I'm going to get some Iris' in the ground this fall. Beautiful picutes!

Beautiful. I'd love to swap some of your iris come this fall. Mine are dark purple.

Hey, happy belated birthday! Sorry I missed yours!

Thanks for your kind comments about Tommy and Emily. Yes, that is Tommy's actual birthday..the first we've ever known for our rescues.
