The scent of lilac is one of my favorites. In high school, my nickname was "Lily Lilac" because of the perfume I wore. I'm still not sure if the teasing was exactly good natured (or not!), but I didn't care then, and I sure wouldn't mind being enveloped in a cloud of it again for old times sake!

Hiya Jennie...mind you, it is yet and still a bush, but it's a great start!!...I may call you 'Lily Lilac' now as well, w/ all affection...and send the glorious fragrance clear across the country to Robin's Woods...:)))))))

Thank you Tara...we are totally thrilled w/ the blooms and now the bonus fragrance...will bring some in the house @ the right time...right now I'm enjoying the aroma of the eggplant parm I just took out of the oven!!!!

I like the variegated edges to the petals...pretty! I'm happy you managed to share with us... :0)

I absolutely adore lilacs! I wish I could find some of that deep purple, white trimmed variety, locally. All I ever seem to find is the pale almost white lavender.

Mine haven't opened yet, but I can not wait. Your pictures are just beautiful.

Izile, it was a surprise to us, as this was our first bloom, so we're thrilled that we've got any lilacs...will probably cut them back today or tomorrow and bring them in the house!!

Oh, how exciting for you Lydia...something to look forward to...so glad you enjoyed the pics!!!
