Ohhhhh....these photos are so delectible I can catch their aroma as I look at them!

And a happy Mother's Day to YOU, too. Thank you for your comment on my blog about the surfboard kitty. (grin) It is one of my all time favorites! I'm glad you cold see him, too.

Ceder, lovely photos of Lilacs. I am anxiously waiting for mine to pop. Can't wait for the day when we can open our windows and let the fragrance drift in.

That first lilac photo is notecard worthy. Also like your new header picture. I hope you had a nice day with your family.

Anne said...

Are these YOUR lilacs? We don't have any that have popped ! Wow!

These lilacs are outside a hotel in Albany, NY. I was there over the weekend. Lilacs here in the Adirondacks are not close to blooming,.. maybe in another couple of weeks. Thanks so much everyone for your kind comments! And for Corin,.. I took the new header shot back in 2002 at a camp on Upper Saranac Lake. Thanks!

Hi Cedar, Don't you love seeing all of the new growth in springtime???? So beautiful...

I've enjoyed catching up on your blog posts. I'm sure you enjoyed your granddaughter enjoyed having her Grandma there to see her play softball. I wish we could have seen the grands play while we were in Texas.

Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day.
Hugs,
Betsy
