Wet Morning

Toby and I took a walk this morning and it was very wet.  The mosquitoes were hungry and it was overcast, also.  But, we got some good photos.

I don’t know what the below is, but it is pretty:

Below is my old lilac bush, which I planted, from a seedling, about 14 years ago.  I have had the hardest time getting it to bloom, but this year it appears to have given in and put out about seven blooms.  Oh, I love the smell of lilacs!  They smell clean.

Below is our lovely crabapple tree, which I planted from a seedling at the same time as the lilac.  It is blooming like crazy!  I love it!  That is all one tree.  It is much taller than our house.  That puny little lilac is still not as tall as I am.

Crabapple blossoms under a beautiful blue sky that I was able to catch between clouds:
