An afternoon walk down 21st Street


shows the wisteria


and the lilacs


 at their utterly blissful best. So many bees buzzing!
Such a wonderful scent! If there is a heaven,  lilacs will abound.

  2. The streets are purple here too now that the Jacaranda trees are in flower. The wisteria is so beautiful...

  3. I so agree about the beauty of that particular block of brownstones. Lilacs and wisteria are magnificent...and I wouldn't mind adding a peony or three to the mix!

  4. My dad used to say, "If you could bottle that smell, you'd be a millionaire"

    I think of him whenever I see, or smell those lovely blossoms.

    Breathtaking!

    PS. I didn't mean those ACTUAL blossoms, as I don't live in New York!

  6. I'm trying to recall the lucious fragrance of lilacs. Soon, the pendulous blossoms will bloom here too. Wonderful walking with you.

  7. Now I want to smell the lilacs. I'll have to wait another two or three weeks. That is, unless a late frost gets ours first. Wonderful spring photos, Ewix.

  9. My wisteria at my new house was beautiful for the short time that it bloomed but it also infected the deck with wood-rot and now I have to replace the whole deck. Fortunately I don't have to get rid of the wisteria but just cut it back.
    Your photos are beautiful, as usual.
