Lilac Branch

The Lilacs are barely starting to bloom as you can see in this picture. Saturday is the 61st Junior Lilac Parade in downtown Spokane. This parade features elementary and middle school bands and drill units, youth organizations, and other clubs. My friend's 5th grade youngster, Pete, is marching in the parade this year.

Gorgeous close up of this wonderful blossom. I bought a tree this year to plant. I too can smell it's unique fragrance from here. Soon it will be all over our area and cut bouquets inside.

marvellous flowers and such an unforgettable smell! love the compo here very much!
(here, the lilacs are long gone ... in the past we used to pick lilac flowers from the bushes on mother's day, but this year this would have been impossible ... mother's day is tomorrow, and there's no more lilac ... !!!)
