Over the years I've accumulated 6 different lilac bushes/trees. Many of them are over 15 feet tall and just loaded down with flowers right now.
I have one in the front yard that is a french lilac. Its a pale lavendar color. My Mom gave that one to me and it has the most amazing smell.
You can smell it everywhere in the front of the house. I smell it as soon as I open my car door.
Then I have4 dark purple ones, one in the front yard and three in the back. Then I have a white lilac my girlfriend gave me.
Right now their ALL in bloom. Personnally, I love the smell but I know some people don't. I sure hope my neighbors like the smell...the one in the front is really the only one with a strong scent. I love this time of the year!
I cut 3 clusters of the light colored ones and two branches of the darker ones to make this vase full.
I wish this screen was scratch and sniff so you could smell how heavenly this smells!!!
