Color of the Month April 2015- Lilac

Spring might have officially arrived on March 20th, but in my mind spring really arrives when the final threat of a freeze comes and goes. Here in middle Tennessee that's early April. I know it's really spring when my Lilacs bloom! So to honor spring and my dear departed Grandma who always allowed me to play and pick her Lilacs to my hearts content- I give you April's color of the month!

Here's a picture of one of my Lilac Bushes.

Lilacs, spring, blooms, gardening

And here's my Pinterest board for the month. I hope you like it and will remember to get out there and smell the beautiful spring blooms around you. Dig in the dirt a little. Laugh in the sun a little. Spring is the time to renew your soul!

Please share in comments: Do you have Lilac bushes in your yard?


  1. I love lilacs! We have two bushes in our yards, and the leaves are just starting to come out. We probably won't have lilacs bloom until May. I love their scent, too!

  2. Hi Ginny Marie.

    Seeing the leaves is a good sign that spring is coming. And the scent, one of my favorite scents in the world!

  3. I love Lilacs! They don't bloom for a bit more here in NY and our frost date is usually early May, so Mother's Day is planting day here.

  4. No Lilac bushes near me--but today I did notice the daffodils are showing their
    pretty yellow flowers and I have seen 2 Robins so far--a sure sign of spring for me.

  5. I've never had lilac bushes before, and that's a shame. I would love to plant one though!

  6. Hi Maggie,

    Me too! May will be here before we know it and you'll get yor Lilac blooms.

  7. Hi Miki,

    I love when the Daffodils and Robins show up here too. Spring really is coming to all parts of the US.

  8. Hi Liz,

    I hope you get to palnt a Lilac bush this year. They are pretty self-sufficient .

  9. Hi Karen,

    Me too! Thanks for stopping by. :)


I'd love to hear from you!
