Hi Deena,I love lilac bushes and I love to make a lilac bouquet for the house. They smell wonderful.Hugs,LeAnn:)
How could I not smell them? Just surrounded by lilacs must be wonderful. Have a lovely weekend.
Oh, Deena, I can almost smell them!!! They are just beautiful!! My prayers and much love to you as always as you finish your last Chemo. Such a wonderful and brave girl. Hugs, Suzanne.
Oh Deena! Lilacs are my fav flower. I grew up in Wisconsin. I used to pick them for my mom and gramma anna. Thier delightful scent would fill the house. Aroma therapy was not that big in the 60's but I remember lilacs seem to improve the mood of everyone in the house. hm... :) I sent you two emails too. The last one had my addy. For some reason your email wne to my spam... but I found it!!! Im soooo happy I won the book! I was wondering if you couls send a few lilac blooms along with the book?? Candles and some of the gragrence oils just are not the same as the real thing! :) Jackie
It will be a few weeks before our lilacs bloom in Bismarck, but when they do it will be heaven. Lilacs have always been, and always will be, my favorite flower/scent. I have just one small bush, but I will be going around the neighborhood just sniffing and sniffing!
Oh Deena...I CAN smell them...and they are very very favorite! How Blessed you are to have them growing there to enjoy....I'm jealous! I absolutely love them...your phots are lovely...Hugs,Robin
Oh just plain lovely...i too love lilacs and actually my sister brought home a bunch on Saturday...they smell so nice...and are so springy!I hope you are well...Jamie
Hi Deena,Your lilacs are amazing, they are huge! I don't think I have ever seen such huge ones before in my entire life!!!!!! WOW!Hope you are happy and doing well today! We are having amazing weather, I am so happy to be hot! The cold was really getting to me, I would rather sweat then shiver...XXOO,Donna Lynn
The lilacs are in bloom in England too. I'll inhale their scent and think of you.
Hi Deena ~ Oh, your lilacs are absolutely gorgeous! I LOVE lilacs more than anything else and they bring back a very special memory of my 13th birthday...I received a HUGE bouquet from a close family friend who was like a big brother to me :) As always, you're in my thoughts & prayers :)
Oh I can smell them as I imagine myself sitting on the glider on my mothers porch as I was growing up...our yard was full of them..your yard is to die for...so many trees, flowers, varmints I love to visit with you on your blog... the coffee tastes so much better on your deck... thanks for the dream,Mimi
Our lilac bushes are hiding behind the house. I don't know why someone would plant them there but they sure smell lovely as I sit on the back porch! I can't see them but the scent is amazing =) Blessings... Polly
Hi Deena,I don't believe I have ever smelled fresh lilac but my imagination is doing just fine :) Very very pretty!Hugs,Dena
Oh Deena.....they are simply gorgeous! Lilacs are my all time favorite flower, even moreso than roses. I love how they look and I love their scent. You are so blessed to have such big bushes and to have them reach your deck where you can sit and have coffee and admire them. I wish I could run over and have coffee with you on your deck and have a good ol hen talk. Continuing to pray for you Deena.In Him with hugs and a forhead kiss ~ Sharon

Lilacs are one of the world's best smells. Have a beautiful day, Deena!
What a divine corner of the world you have secured for yourselves there..looks like such a lovely place to just be. Happy Monday to you, Deena, xo
Glory be! Lilacs are my favorite in the whole wide world. I have just a couple and they don't do well. I wish I was closer. I'd come and cut a big bouquet for my dining room table. I'd bring you lemon cake and tea and we'd sit out on your deck and just be.....
Yes, I think I can!! They are BEAUTIFUL! Oh, it reminds me of a couple of large lilac bushes that were on the property I grew up on. I hope your week is a good one!Lynn
Oh what a beautiful sight! Wish I could smell them. Hope you're doing well. Thinking of you...Karen
There is nothing more amazing to smell than a blooming lilac! I used to have one and by accident it was pulled up and carted off by workers. It looked a lot like this one. I miss it terribly. Hugs! Nancy
Is the scent not heavenly?? I just adore it, your pictures are just beautiful!love,Kelly

What a beautiful pictures. I love the smell of lilacs. I read your side bar my dad was diagnosed with stage 5+ lymphoma cancer two years ago. He is right now cancer free and doing great. I will be praying the same for you. I enjoy your blog Char
I can almost smell them. Beautiful. :)
Deena- I love lilacs too- we have some at the new house, but they are very overgrown. I want to really prune them after they bloom this year in hopes that next year the blooms (and scent) are closer to the ground (and me!)I long from the days of snoozing. Just got back from Dr and have tentatively scheduled surgery for end of August- so no lifting for 8-10 weeks. Must get house done before then! Love- Anita
The lilacs are beautiful!
Oh my goodness Deena!!! Your lilacs are AMAZING!! I can't even imagine how wonderful they must smell when you are sitting on your deck. I do hope that you are doing good sweet friend. Wishing & praying you well, xxoo, Dawn
Beautiful lilacs! Thanks for sharing! :)
Oh, lucky you to have such beautiful lilac bushes. When I was a little girl we had them in the back yard all along the fence it was wonderful every spring we had the best smellin' back yard in the world.
