One fine day

One of the bloggers who I follow regularly is Kim of Art in Red Wagons...lately she has started an on-going theme of One Fine Day...reflecting the positive enlightenment that can occur if one just tweaks their thinking a tiny tad...and takes a moment to breath...


I like this idea...I'm adopting it as my mantra...

The white lilacs are in bloom...the tree is in my neighbor's yard but a good share of the branches are hanging over my garden fence...the fragrance is astounding...and I love how the green leaves pop in my white composition photo...linking up to Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday...it is indeed one fine day...

  1. Amy - Lilacs are my favourite flowers - funny how they always seem to be hanging over a fence - ours were from the neighbour as well, and as a kid I used to run home from school smelling them and biscuits my mum used to bake - it's a stand out memory that your image has brought back!! Fantastic treatment with the filters and light - cheers!!

  6. I have been searching around in our area for white lilacs to grace my table, amy!! How fun to have them 'peeking' over your fence!! Your image is amazing ... and yes the green definitely 'pops'!! Love the pitcher you've showcased them in, as well. Nicely done! Also want to thank you for 'popping' in at my place and commenting, too! Enjoy your week, and those gorgeous lilacs!! :)

  7. Oh I just LOVE this!
    It's positively contagious :)

    Isn't it nice when something as lovely as a lilac will hang over your fence pleading with you to pick them!?!

  15. Just gorgeous! I have planted a lilac tree but not sure if it will thrive here on the warm coast. Still, I'm trying and I have such wonderful memories of the lilac that grew in my mother's garden, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Oh, and when I went to Vienna in spring a few years ago, I was thrilled to bits to see hundreds and hundreds of flowering lilacs, everywhere.
