Can You Smell Spring?
Ahhhh! The lilacs are blooming. The lilac perfume is one of my favorite parts of Spring. This is a dark purple hybrid called Frank Klaeger. I think I have blogged about that story before. Sadly, this bush is covered in moss and leaning severely so I do not think it is long for this backyard. I am enjoying it while I can.
This is an old fashioned lavender lilac that seems to be impervious to the afflictions of the hybrids.
I do not know what this plant is called. It was planted here when we bought the house 35 years ago and the bush is HUGE, about 15 feet across and 5 feet tall. Every Spring it is covered with cascading white blooms that remind me of a bridge's bouquet.
I hope Spring in in the air where you are!
