More spring in the garden

Our lilac does really well in the front garden. It was bought as a tiny plant about 25 cm high and is now 4 years a bush as big as I am. And has a great scent and beautiful white blossoms. I had to learn to love the white because it was bought as a light yellow.

The burgundy Irises again, looking very pink here.

And the white "hedge rose", gorgeously open and unfilled.

Have a great weekend!

    1. I love the "holiday" look in your pictures :-)
      It rains a lot here, sometimes more often, sometimes less, but you really don't want to go for walks with four dogs when three of them don't really want to go outside...

  2. Dearest Tina,

    Will you please indulge yourself on that heavenly white lilac; also for me?! How I MISS them... but here it is too hot for them to survive. Bet that in Morocco they don't grow either, and that is our latitude.
    Enjoy your Sunday.
    Love,
    Mariette

  5. What a beautiful garden you have and what a great selection of vegetables already.

    I have one currant bush and it is doing nothing, just sitting there while I long for currants.

    I'm a little jealous....

  6. Thank you for visiting my blog Tina.

    I adore lilacs and yours look lovely - thankfully the weather has turned warmer now so I'm hoping my small lilac shrub will bloom very soon.
