Every spring I look forward to snipping lilac bunches from our bush for an overflowing bouquet of purple lovelies. It’s amazing to see how much beauty God puts into a single lilac with its breathtaking aroma.

but the word of our God will stand forever.

    Absolutely stunning! I simply love lilacs – not only their colour but their beautiful aroma. :) God’s creation is indeed amazing.

    Emily Rose,

    Your photos had me doing a quick check on my family’s lilac bushes, but no beautiful blooms like these yet! Thanks for sharing, I especially liked your second photograph.

    Many Blessings,

    Oh how beautiful! I grew up with lilacs everywhere. I miss them, Tennessee doesn’t have many.

    beautiful! I just shared this verse with my daughter this morning as she wanted to know why the lilacs were {fading}

    Ooooh, yes. Lilacs are one of the very best parts of spring. We have a big hedge of them and they just perfect for snipping, photographing and sniffing. :-)

    Hi Emily,

    Oh those lilacs are just beautiful!!! One of my neighbor’s has a lilac in their front yard. It’s the most beautiful shade of creamy pink :) :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

    Those are beautiful. We don’t have that many flowering plants where I live so I never really get to pick fresh flowers and put them in a vase. I hope that will change soon…
    Have a blessed week,
    Purity Leigh
    P.S. I just wanted to let you know that I have changed my blogging name (I used to be Tulip). I’ll be using Purity Leigh from now on.

    Pretty pictures! Perfect verse, especially for this time of year.

    They are gorgeous! I wish we had lilacs. How can someone believe there is no God when they look at something as beautiful as a flower?

  17. Rebekah on Apr 12, 2012 said:

    Oh my! That is simply breathtaking! You are EVER so blessed to get to enjoy those fragrant lilacs this spring! Beautiful, thank you for sharing. I can’t grow lilacs where I live. I used to enjoy them every spring when I lived overseas.
    You know what? Last year I had such a “lilac fever”. I wanted so badly to get to smell that perfume again and see those beautiful flowers. And I also wanted to smell the lily-of-the-valley. I didn’t even pray about it, but God knew my heart and granted me the chance to travel to another state and there, I got a whole boquet of lilacs from some friends’ garden, and smell a dainty bouquet of lily-of-the-valley from some other friends.
    It was such a blessing and a precious memory that I’ll hold with me since God granted my heart’s desire.

    Gorgeous, gorgeous photos. I feel as though I could actually smell the photograph! :)

    Beautiful lilacs!

  20. Brittany on Apr 14, 2012 said:

    Those are beautiful! My mom loves lilacs. We have a bouquet of them on our kitchen table right now from our grandma.
    As usual, your pictures are wonderful!

    How beautiful! God’s glory can clearly be seen in all that He has made!



  22. Rhonda on Apr 14, 2012 said:

    I agree–lilacs are one of my absolute favorites–my hubby brought me home a huge bouquet the other day–he knows the way to my heart:)

  23. Joanne Bischof on Apr 19, 2012 said:

    Gorgeous! I love the scent of Lilacs. I’m watching my bush begin to bud and I can’t wait :)

  24. Chantel on Apr 19, 2012 said:

    Oh, what glorious photos! I love and miss lilacs so very much. :) BTW, do you allow pinning of your images? I’d love to use the one with the books, in particular on our http://ylcf.org boards on pinterest, but totally understand if not!

  25. Emily Rose on Apr 19, 2012 said:

    Chantel, thank you! And thank you for asking about pinning my images… yes, I do allow (and encourage) pinning of my images. :-) The only request is that you pin from the direct link of a post so that if you view and click the image on Pinterest, it directs you back to the post where it originated.
