I just adore lilac! The flowers and the scent are wonderful. The lilac tree in the garden has an interesting heritage. My great grandparents had a lilac tree in their garden and when my grandma got married and moved away she took a little cutting. That tiny cutting grew and bloomed and eventually, years later, my dad brought a cutting to our house. So this is the third generation of the family to have a lilac all descended from that first tree. If I move out to my own home I plan on taking a cutting too. Hopefully my gardening skills will have improved by then so that the tree can survive!
I am so grateful for a sunny day so I can appreciate this beautiful tree!
