Anyway - the big lilacs right by the door to the garage, the Korean Dwarf Lilacs, are in bloom now! Let's start with a look at them!
|Dwarf Korean Lilacs|
Can you smell them? They're our third lilac type to bloom each year. We see and smell these every time we go outside, so we really look forward to them! Some of them are at least 4 feet tall, so that whole "dwarf variety" thing might be a mislabel!
We aren't the only ones who like them! Check out these guys:
There have been butterflies all over them for the past couple of days!
Mom said they're doing their pollen dance. Or something like that.
Aren't they pretty? And colorful!?! These guys and their friends were all over our lilacs!
Speaking of friends, guess what else is in bloom? The PINK Lily of the Valley that our buddy Mitch and his sweet angel sister Maggie sent us!

We always think of them and their parents when we see them! What wonderful friends!
The "regular" Lily of the Valley are in bloom now, too:
Mom just loves both varieties! Lily of the Valley are toxic to both dogs and kit-cats, though, so Mom planted them out front, where we are always on lead, and makes sure we keep a good distance!
Those are the new blooms in our yard this week. Zim and I will show you more of the lilacs tomorrow! Happy Monday!
We love the smell of those Lily of the Valley. So prettyReplyDelete

Those flowers are very pretty! We especially love the white ones as they remind us of bells.
