An Amusing Morning in The Garden

Lilacs are in bloom



I can see beautiful lilacs from the second story window. This is the view from my parlour, in our old 1800's house.  As I sat here and did a little reading, Mr. White told me there were butterflies in the bushes. I was so excited, I grabbed my camera.  He helped me take out the window screen. But my vision was too far away.

I gave him the camera. It is a digital camera and he didn't know how to use it.  I gave him an easy lesson and watched as he went to the front property.

Mr. White is over 6 feet tall. I knew he would get some good shots. I happily followed him outside. I tried taking pictures too, but mine didn't come out as well as his. (I am a foot shorter than Mr. White.) The photograph below is one of mine.   I bet you can't even see the butterfly!

When we came back into the house. I told Matthew (18) and John (13) about the pictures. Matthew smiled. He was amused. "Is that what Dad was doing out there? Taking pictures of flowers?"

For someone who has never used a digital camera, I'd say he did a marvelous job. And that, my dears, is what I call a lovely morning here in Vermont.

My lilac bushes are finally in bloom too, about a month later than normal. My very first lilac was just a stick that I got from a cutting off my mom-in-laws garden. Now I two huge bushes that are taller than me, and about 6 others that I have growing in pots- all from little cuttings! I love them!
