Lilac Legacy

My mother loved lilacs. At least I believe she did because over the years, she planted a variety of bushes. They come on, one type  after the other, filling the area around the old house with a variety of fragrances - lest you thought they all smell the same.

For Mother's Day, my son Donovan gave me two Korean dwarf lilacs and planted them up here at our house, one in front and one at the dining room window. Its fragrance wafts in through an open window..

  1. What a marvelous legacy and thoughtful mother's day gift! I have strong and happy memories of the lilac shrubs at my childhood home--one of my "secret" places. I never knew that lilacs had different scents or that there were so many varieties until I visited a botanic garden a lilac season. I have one fragrant lilac shrub and have put sprigs around the house, so I smell it everywhere I go.
