    For The Love Of Lilacs

    Lilacs are precious to me. When I see or smell lilacs, I reminisce fondly of my mother. She adored lilacs. A small lilac bush was very much at home near on the border of our and our neighbor's properties. We would "share" the lilacs with them along with the rhododendrons.  One...

    The Old-fashioned French Lilac

     The lilacs are in bud, nearly ready to burst forth with sweet aroma that scents my entire backyard. The white one near the pond came from my grandmother's house where it grew by the quaint old tool shed and back fence. Many times she told me the story of how she had...

    They Smell Tooo Good

    I have loved lilacs since I was small. It may be the smell or the fact that my favorite color is purple (probably the smell) Fortunately there is a huge "Lilac Festival" here every year and we have numerous lilacs as well as hybrids. Then there is the food and the...

    Purple Summer

    My mother's mother has always kept a spotless, ordered house. Many happy summers were spent visiting my grandparents there. My sister and I slept in the second bedroom on crisp, clean sheets and as we fell asleep at night, we knew the smell of purple lilacs would be wafting in...

    Get Em' While They Are Here

    Gotta Have My Own

    I just bought a lilac bush. It is very small right now but I have great hopes that in a few years it will rise several feet high and be filled with beautiful and fragrant blossoms. It's blossoms will be the vibrant magenta pink as pictured above. I have always wanted a lilac...

    Lilac Trees...

    We have had a lilac tree in my front yard as long as I can remember. The blooms would seem to burst out in big bundles of purple. The whole yard would smell wonderful fo a little while. It still is the first scent I think of when someone mentions spring.

    Grandma

    They were my grandma's favorite flower and I love the way they smell. We had a bush in our front yard growing up so we always had the smell wafting through the air every spring and summer. They are so pretty too. Just thinking about them and I can almost smell them now. I don't...
