Lilacs in Missourahhh

I've been lazy busy of late and haven't taken the time to do much on the www. I'm in my Missourahhh right now visiting my parents for spring break. As much as I adore Connecticut this time of year, there is nothing prettier than Missouri in the spring. As I've written before, my mom and dad are gardeners extraordinaire and their entire place is one big flower garden/vegetable garden that is one ongoing burst of different colors and vegetables as the spring/summer/falls seasons roll along. At the moment, it's lilac time!

There are at least 12 different varieties of lilacs - along with one rogue snowball hydrangea bush - in the hedge alongside their driveway. Everything from deep purple to white from small to large blossomed, then there's white rimmed, double flowered, and on and on.

Just when I think I've picked my favorite, another one catches my eye and that one is my favorite! (If you'd like to see more of all the lilacs, please visit my flickr here!)

(Above is the hedge that greets you as you come up their driveway to their home.)

  13. Such grandeur. What a treat, enjoy every moment. I have a snowball bush. We had one when I was a kid. It is intermingled with my dwarf Meyer lemon tree which is flowering right now and my Henry Fonda rose bush. Such grand fragrances.
