We have beautiful lilac trees here in our garden, which at the moment are not in flower..I miss their grace and colour so thought I would paint my version along the same lines as my “Dancing Poppies”.

Lilac Ladies

Stepping out with their petals on show,
Leaves on their hips, colours aglow.
Reaching high enticing the breeze,
Lilac ladies sway, the wind they tease.
The parade is on, a must see for all,
Enjoy them now before their beauty falls.

Linda Callaghan

8 × 11″ watercolour with metallic ink on Canson 300 gsm paper.
