Purple lilac after rain-lilac photos

Purple lilac with its dense clusters of flowers and perfumed fragrance is the scent of May.
Lilacs of all colors, soft shade of purple, violet, lavender, white or bold burgundy, are blooming for a few weeks now but I can never have enough of their sweet smelling fragrances, filling the yard.
It is easy to understand why lilacs are and always were the source of inspiration for romantic poetry, breathtakingly beautiful paintings and photographs, songs, perfumes and much more.

While taking these photos, we all had a free shower in the rain, so these are real raindrops.

Hi Maia - my granddad grew loads of lilacs of different colours. I used to always stay away from them as there was always the constant sound of buzzing and anything that flew in the garden I fled away in fright as I was so scared of wasps and bees.

Thanks for sharing yours - the blooms are so lovely with little raindrops. Its still too early here for them to be flowering.
