Lilacs blooming again
up and about
in spring finery

Your leaves and chestnut flowers are much earlier than ours!ReplyDelete
Merisi, how lovely is lilac's scent? We are beginning to see the annual arrival of lilacs and peonies for sale at all the corner flower stands. Soon it will be lilac time in Central Park.ReplyDelete
I really like the photo of the gardener giving that giant shrub a shaping.
In Warsaw forsythia is just beginning to bloom, rather late this year, BUT they are forecasting temperatures over 20 degrees C for the weekend and early next week. Seems that this year's spring is more like Canadian spring, i.e. cold until May 15th and then right to summer temperature overnight.ReplyDelete
Love the last photo. The bushes look like mud pies or our Easter yeast baba's :-).
Oh , I haven't been here in a while.ReplyDelete
Adore your new banner Merisi!
Ooh, love the new banner!ReplyDelete
Here too, the leaves are already fully out and that brilliant, almost surreal early green that feels like a miracle every time one walks outside.
Beautiful images of Spring! Lilacs are blooming in Oregon too.ReplyDelete
Oh, to have a gardener shaping topiaries at my bequest...ReplyDelete
Spring sure is looking beautiful over there.ReplyDelete
This post fulfills all my dreams of Vienna. Lovely.ReplyDelete
super lush there!
Sun just peeked out in Paris and I'm inside scanning and painting
I like that Gold Johann.ReplyDelete
A disease affecting Horse Chestnuts here. Leaves turned brown last year. Hope you don't get it there, they look so lovely and fresh.ReplyDelete

We are not quite there, this year, but I can't wait anymore!
Wishing you a wonderful day,
I could not believe the green! And then I looked at the date - 2012! Something to look forward to .......ReplyDelete
These are not fair pictures.ReplyDelete
From previous year at the end of April.
I am so sorry, won't happen again!Delete
I just really need the illusion, at least for a day.
Beautiful pic !ReplyDelete
Absolutely lovely shots! Wonderful building at the bottom.ReplyDelete
Beautiful...what is it like this year?ReplyDelete
we are behind by about a month, at least I feel that way.
It has warmed up considerably, though, and the sun's shining. It will rain a bit tomorrow, but blue skies will return Saturday. I believe the warm rain will help speed leaves and spring blooms up!
Horse Chestnuts in Vienna now? It's not possible :-)ReplyDelete
Beautiful images of Spring!
Love the fancy flower placement in the last photo.ReplyDelete
Bright and springy swirl.
I think Spring has finally arrived in your beautiful city.
The Johann Strauss statue is really beautiful. Looks like a wonderful place to visit. :)ReplyDelete
A late April Fools day joke!ReplyDelete
