We haven’t had much luck getting lilacs to bloom in our garden. So when George told me that the lilac he planted about three years ago was finally blooming, I raced outside with my camera. I was a little sad to see that the flowers weren’t open yet.
We impatiently awaited further unfurling of the flowers, and were finally rewarded with this wonderful sight.
We’re amazed to see that each individual flower is outlined in white. The scent, of course, is heavenly. I had trouble tearing myself away!
Any other lilac lovers out there? How are yours doing this year? Oh, and George doesn’t know what kind this is, so if you know, please leave a comment. Ah, thanks to my knowledgeable facebook friends Joan and Dennis, it appears that this lilac is appropriately named “Sensation.”
