Blossom Time

In the last few days there has been an eruption of blossom on the trees in our neighbourhood and the scent of lilac fills the air.

I don't know what this shrub is, but the flowers are very striking and later in the year it will be covered in berries.

Many of the trees are adorned in white like brides at a wedding. Sadly, with the winds we are experiencing today, I suspect that the blossom won't last much longer.
