Capture What Counts Photography

Day 310 – Mom’s Lilacs

Today we visited Rob’s Mom and Dad, and Mom told me that her lilacs were blooming.  I have never photographed lilacs before, so I was pretty excited at this news!

  1. I think my mom used to have lilacs when she was growing up in Colorado. I never knew they were so pretty. We can’t get squat to grow in Florida. Except palm trees & grass that you would call weeds. Lovely photo! This may be a silly question, but do they smell?

    • They smell amazing! Very sweet…almost too sweet. But there’s nothing better to let you know that spring has arrived!
