Lilacs, Apple Blossoms, and Little Birds!

The Delights of Spring!

Old ancestral lilacs and apple blossoms from our old Astrachan apple tree. The delightful scent of the lilacs and apple blossoms fill my old fashioned kitchen!
In "The Springs of Joy", Tasha Tudor illustrated lilacs.

The old Astrachan apple tree at the end of our woodshed was so lovely this year, full of fragrant blossoms! Day and night one could smell the beautiful scent. The above photograph was taken at night last week. It remained so full and lovely until last night's thundershowers brought most of the blossoms down.

A robin built a nest on the rake on our porch.

A close up of the nest revealed a small beak was moving, pecking its way out!
