Scenic Sunday, Lilacs and Gloucester Town Hall

This is a shot that I have wanted to take ever since I moved to Massachusetts two years ago. This is the Gloucester Town Hall. The lilacs are at there peak this week.

I usually do one post per day, but there is so much going on now, I’ve posted three. Be sure to check out my Anna’s Hummingbird and my Pink Lady’s Slipper posts.

Wow, this shot was worth its wait!! It's beautiful.
Our lilacs are finished here. It was a very short growing season this year, I think due to the excessive rain we had.

I bet the lilac smells good too! Wonderful scene. I love the lighting you took it in and how it casts a warm glow on one side of the tower.

What a great shot! Wonderful light, and the town hall looks like it is growing from the lilac tree! Very interesting architecture on that building!

A postcard!

The combination of the architecture with the flowers is fabulous. I haven't been to Gloucester in many years (I grew up in Newton).

White Lilac is so super special, there is even a German lovesong about in from the 1940's.
