Flower Varieties :: Lilac

Lilac, one of the most beautiful flowers in the world, the colors, the shape and the fragrance - wow! I fell in love with the lilac as a child. My grandmother had three bushes in her yard, the light colored lilac bloomed the most. The dark purple lilac only gave us a few blooms each spring which made it more treasured to me. I loved arranging the lilac and garden roses the most - the shapes and fragrance looked so beautiful together. sigh.... :)
Now living here in Denver I get to enjoy lilacs even more. So many everywhere I go!

If only the computer would allow us to scratch & sniff!




This photo brings back memories from childhood. My grandmother loved when the monarch butterflies would flutter in and visit the lilac, we only saw a few each year.
