Lilacs

EDM Challenge #59-Sign of Spring
I love lilacs......the smell soooo wonderful. This has been a good spring for all the flowering shrubs and trees. Tonight we are supposed to have a cold snap though, so I hope they don't all get frozen.


Colleen snuggled up to the fire tonight...there is a definite chill in the air.

I really like your lilac drawing. I had a "lilac dinner" last year with friends and gave everyone paper and lavender pencils and paint and asked them to darw the lilacs. None of us had much luck! Yours are great!
