I have two half-written posts that I don’t seem to be able to find time to finish so I thought I’d share some of our spring photos with you in the meantime. Those you follow Loire Daily Photo will already have seen some of them.

    Spring, how beautiful!
    Does lilac come in different shades? This one is so much pinker than I expected.

      It’s not always easy to photograph lilac outside because of the light. I’ve added a photo showing the same lilac after cutting a couple of years ago. That is the most common shade. It also comes in a dark purple colour and white.

    Spring is so beautiful in Europe, Rosemary. We are in Budapest right now and are delighted to smell the lilac and all the other spring flowers.

      I do hope you’re enjoying Budapest! In particular I hope the weather isn’t as ghastly as it’s been here the last week. It keeps raining all the time. Where else are you headed?

  3. The viburnum we do get here, or at least something quite similar, but we won’t see them blossom like that for at least three weeks.

    I’m sure you get the viburnum as well. It’s lovely isn’t it? Looking forward to seeing your photo in three weeks!
