The Sweet Aroma of Lilacs

In my home town, one of my favorite streets to take an evening stroll down during early summer is Union Street. At that time of the year, its sidewalks are encroached with lilac trees in full bloom. A sea of purple washes over the trees as the warm evening sun releases their aroma. The sweet alluring elixir draws me in as a smile appears on my face as I begin to escape into a purple paradise. My senses of sight and scent are full engulfed by the beauty.

… and I had to show a white one. 🙂 … Although not as fragrant, just as pretty.

  2. Lovely photo’s of the lilacs, lucky you to enjoy their fragrance. I’ve had occasion to enjoy their fragrance and beauty when I visit family in Melbourne. So many fragrant flowers enjoy a cold climate. I live in the tropics flowers are beautiful but quite different here.Enjoyed your post.

    • Thank you Lyn. Living in Newfoundland allows me to enjoy a variety of things. The season is short, so I try to emerse myself as much as possible! Love looking at the tropic flowers. They are very beautiful.
