They're as common as can be, but I absolutely adore a good old fashioned lilac. I think their scent is heavenly and I am always disappointed at how briefly the blooms are present. I have been making an effort to visit my lilac once a day and inhale its fragrance at least for a few moments. Yesterday, I found this butterfly enjoying the flowers as much as I was.
If anyone knows what kind of butterfly this is, please share! I am no expert.
The blooms will be gone soon, but they've been a great spirit-lifter the last couple weeks. What are some of your favorite flowering shrubs?
