Smelling the Lilacs

Hello everyone,
I know it is a busy time of the year for all gardeners but I hope you
will take a few minutes out of your day and smell the beautiful fragrance of the lilacs
along with our little granddaughter Lila.

We have buckets of lilacs!

In our little conservatory.

Love this bouquet in the Gardener's Cottage.

The Boathouse veranda

We had a beautiful day here today and I am enjoying having the windows open and the screen doors on once again to catch all those summer breezes and here all the birdsong in the garden.

Thank you for visiting me,

Your lilacs are spectacular - and your granddaughter Lila is a true beauty. Look at her in that pretty dress, what a wonderful photo!

I can smell those wonderful lilacs all the way down here in NC, Carolyn! (On vacation here.)

Your granddaughter is very precious and the lilacs are pretty, too.

Aren't they a perfectly glorious flower? Susan

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this blog.
It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's tough to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appeal.

I must say you have done a superb job with this. Additionally, the blog
loads very quick for me on Opera. Exceptional Blog!

I do not know if it's just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering problems with your blog.

It appears like some of the text within your posts are running off the screen.
Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know
if this is happening to them too? This might be a problem with
my browser because I've had this happen previously. Thanks
