Lilacs are beautiful flowers and offer such a sweet colour to the areas where they grow. In the picture they are glowing next to a characteristic pine tree of mountainous Attica.
In Greek the lilac is called paschalia, probably because it blooms at Easter, "Pascha".
Thank you for visiting, happy weekend and Easter to all

Oh, very nice spring photo, clever composition, attractive colors! We have got the same title "Pascha" of this celebrating, 'cause we have taken this word from Greek Orthodox church tradition.

I love the sight of lilac, it means the world is returning to life and summer is coming, meaning happi people and smiling faces on the street. Perhaps it's an Irish thing, that after such a long wet miserable winter, we miss the sun so much that when it finally returns, we all go mad and soak it in. But that is why this flower makes me smile, its a sign of things to come. A beautiful example of this flower, with such lovely contrasting colors. I like the birdhouse too, a nice additn to the scene. Although I am a title right now of the presents they are leaving all o my car!
Thanks as always, and a very happy Easter to you and yours.

A nice composition here, full with rich colours and warm lights. Excellent framing. Nice to see it from such low POV... TFS.

interessante il nome di questo fiore nella tua lingua, una foto e una nota che si completano a vicenda, ricordando questa festività con il colore lilla.
Buona Pasqua anche a te

I hate to do this, but with very limited free time at the moment, please pardon my ‘copy & paste’ note. I really wanted to respond to as many as possible before this next week really gets away from me. With no time for details unfortunately, I can still say this image is one that I find quite enjoyable. :) All the best to you and yours for a Happy Easter. Take care.

Good morning dear friend Ourania

wondeful postcadr remitted to all of us

There is a very nice Greek house of a different kind on this trunk. Its light blue paint matches the pink lilacs very nicely and also goes well with the green leaves and dark blue sky. This is a very enjoyable composition from a (necessarily) low POV. At first I thought it was different from your usual style, but then I realized that you probably have far more "styles" than the average TE member, always finding new approaches to ordinary things.
Kind regards, and a continued happy Easter,

On voit à peine quelques bourgeons dans mes lilas et pourtant les vôtres sont en pleine floraison. J'aime beaucoup cette contre plongée qui pousse le regard jusqu'à la petite cabane à oiseau.
Cricri (105331) 2014-04-20 6:11
Bon format qui inclus le petit mangeoire pour les oiseaux, de belles couleurs et le rendu excellent des détails, j'aime la senteur du lilas
Joyeuse Pâques a vous aussi
ikeharel (56066) 2014-04-20 8:33
Beautiful spring photo, vivid Lilach colors, and the blue dovecote is a nice addition to the nature's surrounding on picture.
saxo042 (37268) 2014-04-20 11:28
Beautiful flowers and a well taken picture. The little "bird house" is dominating the scene with its colour and position high on the tree. An interesting note too!
Romano46 (17516) 2014-04-20 11:36
sia pure con ritardo risposndo ai tuoi auguri di buona Pasqua e colgo l'occasione per complimentarmi per la bella fotografia che hai scelto per farli, piacevolissima e idonea allo scopo.
Mi piace la cura che hai dedicato alla composizione che giudico perfetta e mette in grande evidenza il soggetto ed i colori che lo caratterizzano lasciando ad un magnifico cielo di fare da sfondo.
Ciao e auguri di buone feste

Lepa fotografija cestitka za Uskrs.
Lep pogled na cvece i kucicu za ptice ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazano mesto sa lepim cvecem, lepe boje.
Imajte lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.
Beautiful photos of Easter Greeting.
Nice view of the flowers and birdhouses ...
Good time recording and contrast nicely demonstrated place with beautiful flowers, beautiful colors.
Have a nice and successful day, all the best in the new week that started, good luck.

Firstly Happy Easter pout you and your loved ones.
This is an original photo for that particular day. This is well done.
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-04-21 2:35
Kalo Pascha to you too! Hope you are enjoying it with your family and friends.
The flowers on your picture indeed are beautiful and I know them from other countries, yet have never seen them on my island. I love their smell, it is just overwhelming.
You composed them in your picture very nicely as always. The low POV creates different perspective and the tree seems to be towering over us. The tiny bird house adds very charming element to the image and everything placed against dark sky stands out lovely from the background.
Thanks for sharing and best wishes

ciao Ourania, deliziosa la casetta sull'albero, bella composizione coi fiori in primo piano, ottima nitidezza e bei colori naturali, brava, ciao Silvio
abmdsudi (42664) 2014-04-21 6:42
I do not know these flowers but they are lovely in full bloom and with added aroma I think a must in every garden. What a beautiful springtime symbolic capture to mark the Easter festivity and a bit of vibrant colour to give the sensation to the shot, Belated Happy Easter. Congrats

Lilacs are so beautiful and I like their smell also. They do make a good flower for Easter. I like your pov and it has good details with wonderful colors. Very well done, tfs.
photographer_sg (3791) 2014-04-22 9:57
another lovely composition with the beautiful flowers. I liked the vertical format with the tree trunk as the anchor and the bird house the perfect focal point. Wonderful natural colours and well managed exposure. Thanks for sharing and happy easter to you too. Hope you had fun :-).
adores (36195) 2014-05-31 8:32
A wonderful perfume also, I suppose! I like this composition a lot, with the lilac, the tree and the bird's house. Your low pov is perfect and colours are also very good!
