I love lilacs because of their scent, but your bush is lovely, too.

We have the same bush at our home but they have not bloomed yet.

We always knew this as bridal wreath.

I think my favorite is azalea, but each time I see a flowering bush, I think that one is my favorite.

Lily, I have one right in my side yard! I took pictures the other day. I've never know the name! Thanks :)

Azeleas ... but that's so pretty I may change and make it my fav!

Lily Hydrangea said...

when it comes to flowers I have so many favorites I can never decide on just one. I do love azaleas & should post some pics of them here soon since they are all blooming as well.

I like the butterfly bush, the ones with the veriegated leaves. So pretty when there are several monarchs and others on the purple flower clusters.

This is a lovely photo--I've seen these and they are aptly named. Right now we have every shade of lilac in bloom. My fave is the syringa from my home state of Idaho. Thanks for sharing the beauty!

That is a beautiful plant.

I don't have a favorite flower per se but I do have a favorite palette, which is green. I love a mix bouquet of green tulips with green hydrangeas and other green colored flowers.
