Flowers and Vintage Flickr Group - Lilacs


I love lilacs of almost every colour and when lilacs are flowering - to me that means that spring has arrived. They are also of great sentimental value as they remind me of my childhood in Sweden. We had a huge pink lilac next to the steps our house and the scent was incredible!

"Lilac season begins in April and continues through May, filling the landscape with its ineffable perfume that stirs up memories and fills us with nostalgia. Few can resist the beauty of lilacs, which make extravagant spring bouquets."
[Quote from Bringing Nature Home by Ngoc Minh Ngo]

All images are from my Flickr group Flowers and Vintage - they all link back to Flickr and the photographer's blog or web site. 

If you enjoy taking photographs of flowers in combination with vintage - join Flowers and Vintage over on Flickr.

I'll be back later in the week with another couple of posts.

Hi Ingrid,
Our lilac is flowering like crazy right now. I love being in our yard because the scent is crisp and refreshing. My husband's favorite flower is lilac. It brings back warm childhood memories of his visits to his grandmother's house.

Hello !
J'adore le lilas blanc dans un pot à lait en métal. Très belle photo et bonne idée.

Only today, I noticed lilac wrapped around the rail by some steps and thought to myselfhow beautiful they looked. The scent must have been amazing. x
