Taken late this afternoon and shows the final stage of my lilac tree for this year, that is, until it's the turn of the leaves to fall in autumn! Short but sweet season it has really, from buds on 19 April to this in just 7 weeks.

Many thanks for C&Cs on 'Going, Going....' very much appreciated.

What a shame it's over now, Jim, and another year to wait for that glorious scent to return Smile Carol

Beautiful while it lasted Jim, but like all good things - must come to an end. I do like the bits of blue in this shot. Moira

Well put Smile

Those blue blobs in the background really add to this, Jim.
