Purple Cotton Candy

 

First time in a long while that I have been able to smell the scent of the Lilacs. We've had a little sun, a lot of clouds, some rain and a fair bit of wind, which mixture combined one day this week such that the scent from one of the Lilac bushes next door came wafting over me with the wind for one fleeting moment.

The sunlight in the first picture seemed to illuminate the flowers and all I could think of was "this is what cotton candy would look like if it was purple."

My parents' house had two lilac trees when I was growing up - one purple, one white. Every spring, the smell of lilacs filled the air.

Love that smell. I just wish those flowers lasted longer

When I first moved here, most of everything had been removed from the yard and there was mostly dirt. However in the back corner, they had left what looks to be "one" Lilac bush, which turned out to be a white and purple growing tightly together. I have added three more over the years, but nowhere near as gorgeous as those ones next door.
