That's the only word for it. The wonderful scents and fabulous floral display that greets me when I step outside these beautiful spring mornings. My beloved dogwoods are just beginning to open their face to the sun. I can see the white blossoms scattered throughout the forest, such a welcome sign of spring.
From my back steps the lilac trees are in full bloom and are so splendid they honestly take the breath away. I call them trees rather than bushes because they are far taller than I am maybe 12 to 14 feet and covered in every shade of purple from soft lavender to deep violet and dark wine. I walk past on my way to the hen house each morning to greet the feathered ladies.
Making my way along the path I pass under the wisteria arbor weighted down with blossoms.
You can see the hen house in the distance and on the left hand side more lilac trees.
Standing on my deck with my morning coffee I can get an aerial view of the wisteria in all it's glory - Spectacular! And the scent is just indescribable. Yes, intoxicating about covers it.
I hope spring is showing her beautiful face to you wherever you are. Get out and smell the flowers!
Until next time,
