my favourite things: the lilac

:: lilacs :: 

nobody does it better... the gentle gradation of purpley colour in that springtime masterpiece:  the lilac bush.

part of my lilacy fan club?
love the springtime joy of the lilac?
so lucky to have them everywhere this week.
we spent the day glimpsing them all across the green green moraine.
happy weekend, sweeties.
