Outdoor Wednesday: A Wall of Lilacs

It's Wednesday (well it will be tomorrow!) and that means it's time for Outdoor Wednesday over at A Southern Daydreamer!

I took a couple of pictures in my yard today:
Pretty pink tulips....
Purple, yellow and white tulips....
Old-Fashioned Bleeding Hearts.......

But mostly I was taking pictures of someone else's yard.....this wall of lilacs, to be exact!

I would love this to be my front yard!!!

I could stand in front of this house all day smelling these lilacs.....
But, I'm certain the homeowners might notice me hanging around, smelling their stuff, so I don't stay long (only long enough to sneakily photograph their lilacs!)
My yard is sadly lilac-less. There were two dwarf lilacs in the yard when we bought our house. One of them was very sickly and the other was half-dead. I moved the one that was still pretty decent to another spot that seemed better suited for it, but after two years of growing nicely, it suddenly died mysteriously.

Thanks for joining me tonight! Be sure to visit all the other blog folks to view their Outdoor Wednesday submissions! I know I will!

Beautiful flowers!! I also love the bleeding heart. It is a delicate plant and my wonderful but goofy dog decided to trample it. I have one stalk remaining! :-( The lilacs are gorgeous!

Hello Katie,

Your tulips and bleeding hearts are gorgeous! The stone wall covered in lilacs is beautiful. I too would want to stand there inhaling the scent of all the lilacs!
