Snapshot Saturday is the creation of Alyce at At Home With Books. We post photos that we or family members have taken, we can’t just grab them from the Internet…what fun would that be?! Let’s get started!
I live in an old house that was my Grandparent’s house. Everything is old here, including the residents…by age maybe, but not in spirit! I’ll talk about the Spirits another time.
The floors are old, the refrigerator is old…41 years…and about to bite the dust I’m sad to say.
Even the plants and bushes are old
One of my favorite things has always been the lilac bush that is so far away in my huge yard that I can’t tell from the house if it’s blooming or not. Sadly, due to some encroachment by other tree like things, the lilac isn’t doing very well. Year by year, the blooms get fewer and fewer. I was able to snip some off last week to share with my sister, Ele. Getting so close to them, smelling their aroma and seeing them right there in front of me, I was taken in by their beauty.
I decided I needed to get some photos of the blooms which might not be blooming too much longer. I took several shots, but I think this one is the best.
The wind was blowing this day and I actually thought it might be impossible to get a good closeup that was in focus. I’m very happy with this.
Be sure to stop by at At Home With Books to see some of the other wonderful photos.
Happy Snapshot Saturday!!
