lilacs - the final chapter

Seems like I waited a long time for the full bloom of my one and only beloved lilac bush.
Here it is and I'm not disappointed

Can't you smell it?

This shot was tweeked with picasa's picnik in a 60's style.

The day after I took these photos the mad pruner, pruned the heck out of this bush and I loaded up all my vases, mason jars and pitchers with the long lasting lovely lilac scent.
It remains to be seen if I get any blooms at all next year.
