Early June

 Wild lilacs seen along country roads

Right now central Ontario's country roads are decorated with flowering lilacs and

Dandelions

and !@#$% with dandelion fluff.

Please visit Michelle at Rambling Woods for more NATURE NOTES.

What beautiful lilacs these are. That is one of my very favorite flowers, and love the scent of them. Sadly , they do not do well in Texas, so have to look at others shots. Gorgeous!

They're both lovely!

Dandelions have the most fascinating structure--dandelions and thistles.

Beautiful pictures.The Lilacs are so pretty and I do like the seed heads of the Dandelion as well.

TexWisGirl said...

:) sweet, though.

Dandelions? Boy, do we have a bumper crop around here! I shudder to think what next year will be like with all the seeds blowing around. Soon it should be hot enough that these little pests will be smothered out - at least for another year!

P.S. The lilacs are beautiful. I think I can actually smell them!

Kalantikan said...

Photographically, they are very lovely! But i laughed at the @*?%#!~+ at the end because of the dandelion, haha!

Randy said...

Both are equally beautiful.

I can smell the lilacs from here...and I've made a wish on the dandelion....

Kate said...

The play of light on the flowers and the puffily dandelions is marvelous.

Jack said...

Love lilacs but &^%*$#@ dandelions.

Anita Davis said...

the wild Lilacs are beautiful. I do like the bright yellow color of the Dandelions but the seed pods seem to go EVERYWHERE!! MB

Love the pretty lilacs! I heard the dandelions are important for the bees. Great post, have a happy day!

We used to play a game with Dandelion seed heads - tell the time by slowing the seeds away - however many breaths it took was what the time was - Oh wasn't it fun to be a child.

Now I shudder when I see them in the grass - however if they get out of hand and reach the seed head stage wild parrots and cockatoos sometimes come and visit to eat the seeds.
Take care

Those lilacs are beautiful! I can almost smell them here. :)

They are beautiful!

I thought I was going to drown in dandelion fluff when I finally got my yard mowed.

Lisa Gordon said...

Your lilacs are so beautiful!

Linda said...

Our soil is dandelion-friendly. Perhaps I should grow them as salad greens.

Arija said...

I love the simple wild lilacs, even if they sucker madly, they are the kind I have in my garden. I wish I were in Ontario right now.

Rambling Woods said...

I just love the smell of lilacs in the spring and even though the dandelion is cheerful, it is a nuisance.
