The lilacs are breaking out. Their scent can be felt almost everywhere since it is one of the most common garden bushes around Sweden.Everywhere lilacs in different stages of bloom. Lilacs is the end of the spring semester, the beginning of the summer holidays and the flower all primary school teachers are blessed with by their children on the last day of the semester. Small, small flowers that together create festive, generous purplish racemes. The nature is surely having a feast at the moment and the lilacs may be the late spring/early summer queens. The summer is almost here. Just a few days to go till it is June – not as transforming as May, but a continued luscious and blooming feast.

More purple in Tokyo. Not ink, but pens… http://estilofilos.blogspot.com/2010/05/peco-paco.html
Now if I could only find an ink in just that color :D
Lovely! We don’t have lilacs growing wild here (England) – or at least, if we do, I haven’t seen them.
Ahhhh, my favorite colors……thanks so much for these beautiful pictures.
You are most welcome – happy that there seems to be quite a few purple lovers around. :)
I love purple. Thanks.
