Flower Power!

Happy Friday everyone!!!!  I had such a fabulous Friday because I got to hang out with one of my best friends and we went shopping and did more shopping.  Plus, we had couples date night tonight at Famous Dave's!  I had a mean strawberry spiked lemonade, it sure was tasty:):)

These past couple days, I have been spending more and more time outside trying to get our flower beds ready for summer.  I've also been watching my lilac bush start to bud and bloom into some lovely and fragrant flowers.  I can't tell you how much I LOVE lilac's. 

So, yesterday I decided to pick a couple bouquets of flowers and put them in vases throughout our house and today I gave one bouquet to my friend.  She loved them!

I wanted to share with you all, all of my Spring/flower pictures that I have been snapping throughout this week:)  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!!!

My bouquets after I picked them:)
 They are just soo pretty and I LOVE the smell of them!  I don't think the hubby is loving them so much, but oh well, I do:):)
Lone Ranger
We moved into our house 2 years ago, I keep forgetting to either take this tulip or find a new home for him.  It's the only one in the front of our house. The color is a pretty shade of purple:)
Pretty in Pink!
I can't beleive these are already in full bloom!  I don't remember them blooming so soon last year, even with the later start.  I guess, I can't complain because they are gorgeous:)
Perfect Picture!
 The sun was just peeking through our tree.  I love how you can see the suns rays in this pic!
Neighbors pink tree
 This tree isn't ours, it's the neighbors, but I couldn't help but to take a picture because it's perfect!  We are going to buy and plant a tree similar to this one in our front yard!!!  I can't wait:):)
More random pink tulips:)
The lilacs look so vibrant in this pic!
Before I picked them:)
