Name That Flower

or should I say tree? This is my guess and though it's hard to tell from this picture, what do you think?

The Song of The Lilac Fairy

White May is flowering,
Red May beside;
Laburnum is showering
Gold far and wide;
But I sing of Lilac,
The dearly-loved Lilac,
Lilac, in Maytime
A joy and a pride!
I love her so much
That I never can tell
If she's sweeter to look at,
Or sweeter to smell.
~Cicely Mary Barker

Love to all!

Sure looks like a lilac to me! Have you smelled it?

Yes, we could smell it through the whole yard. At first I wasn't sure what the smell was because we were quite a distance from it. But then as we got closer, it got stronger and I realized it must be that tree. Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with exactly how lilac smells. But I can tell you it was a strong and pleasant.
