lilacs are the thing!

Well, it’s been a long time since my last post! But time flies when you’re traveling and working and doing all kinds of fun home stuff.

So it’s time to share the best pics from my annual sojourn to the Rochester Lilac Festival over Mother’s Day weekend with my mom! The weather on the morning that we went was less than hospitable, but we braved the rain and wind and cold to take it all in; the lilac blooms were nearly at their peak, if maybe a bit past, so it made the entire trip a beautiful adventure.

Below are some of my favorite shots that show off the display (and even some other flowers like pansies and viburnum) in all of their slightly-damp glory. If only this post came with Smell-A-Vision! Enjoy!

xoxo, Danielle

  1. As lovely as your photos are, and they truly are beautiful, all I can think of is how the scent must have assaulted your senses, and how amazing that had to have been. How can anyone get too much Lilac scent? If it’s possible, I don’t know how. LOL

    I’m sorry about the rain, but I’m so glad the shrubs bloomed on time this year, after the disappointment that was last year’s festival. And you did get to spend the day with Mom. Nothing could be better than that. 🙂

  2. What lovely photos, Danielle, and fun memories of a great day and weekend…!!! XO, Mom P.S. What…about…the…rhubarb…hahahahaha!!
