Tuesday Muse - Blooming Lilacs
Joining in on Tuesday Muse this week with some photos of my mom's Lilac tree and bush. - I love how beautiful they are but oh that smell really messes with allergies. Thank goodness I take medication as they can be intoxicating with their fragrant scent.

What I like most about this shot is the "sun-flare" that I captured as well. Can you see it?
Look at the size of these blooms. This is not the common lilac you see most of the time. This one is a French Hybrid called, Agincourt Beauty. It has the largest blooms of all the lilacs and is very fragrant.
Here is a close-up of one of the clusters of blooms.
A couple of years ago I read an add in a magazine about a lilac that bloomed in the spring and then again through part of the summer and into the fall. I copied the information down and ordered her one from the White Flower Farm. It's called a,
Bloomerang Lilac. The first year it only had about 2-3 bloom clusters. This year it's quite pretty with all the dainty little blooms. They remind me of bursting fireworks.
What's really fun is that this will bloom again in late summer and early fall.
