Lilacs in September

The other evening when Adam I were returning from a walk we discovered that one of our lilac bushes was in bloom! We were very surprised to smell the beautiful fragrance of spring on a September evening.

The following day I decided I should take a couple pictures and pick one of the lilacs to press in a book.

Never before have I seen a lilac blooming in September, but it was a delightful surprise!


  1. Dear Sarah, I think it is a sweet sign that God gave you one of your favorite flowers to bless you! I do not I have every seen a lilac bloom this time of year either! A special thing for sure! Yours, Roxy

  2. Dear Sarah ... such a sweet little pleasure. I hope that you have a lovely weekend. Blessings ♥ Teri

  3. That is so neat that your lilac bloomed in September. My mom has lilac's and I have never seen one of them bloom in the fall.

  4. How beautiful! I hope to plant some lilacs soon! :) They are a favorite of mine too!

  5. I when I was a teenager we lived in a house with a lilac tree in the back. I'll always remember the sweet fragrance. Beautiful!

  6. That is amazing! and so odd. What a wonderful extra blessing!

  7. We have four lilac bushes & not one is flowering. How wonderful for you.
    I have just found your blog, it is beautiful.
