Through a dirty window.

I took these pictures through the nose print art on my front window. These are both in my neighbor's yard.

I don't know what this is but it's pretty in springtime and then later in the year, it gets red berries on it.

I love lilacs and for some reason, I could never get them to grow. All the ones I've planted have died. I'll just enjoy the neighbors instead. I wanted to go over and smell them. I just love the scent of lilacs.
Question: In the top right corner, do the lilacs look like a butterfly or a heart to you? First I thought heart then decided more butterfly.


  1. Definitely butterfly - I love lilacs too (who doesn't???) - the color, the scent - So lovely. We don't have many around here. My mother actually grew one from a branch she just stuck in the ground - took years for it to grow big enough to flower but grow and flower it did!

  2. Very pretty. I love lilacs and anything purple. I used to have a lilac bush at my other house and left it behind when I moved. It was right under the dining room window so I could look right out and see it. I enjoyed that so much. Thanks for sharing.

  3. We had a HEDGE of lilacs in Colorado, and I sure miss them this time of year...they don't grow here 'cause I've been told lilacs need to freeze/go dormnant in order to survive. Who woulda known?

    It's definitely a butterfly to me!!

    1. Ps...

      From your comment today:

      To answer your question from my blog about how long it takes me to do the cakes, it all depends on the size and what they want on it. A small one I can finish in maybe 15 minutes. We actually don't bake the cakes there. We order them in frozen.

      15 minutes??!! Why just one rose would take me all day...and come out looking like a daisy!

  4. Looks like a crababble tree. They are so pretty in spring...wish all of this bloomed all summer long!

  5. Thanks for sharing the lilac's. I love them. We don't have them here but I remember them from Illinois growing up.

  6. I love lilacs in all colors. Too bad they don't bloom very long...
