After visiting the garden centres today, my sister, Connie and I stopped along the river and cut some lilac stems. The buds aren't fully open yet but the scent is incredible!
I have two shades of purple lilacs in my garden.
I love to cut a big bouquet when they are full and blowsy and the scent hangs on the air.
The deeper purple were here when I arrived but I've had to prune them back severely.
I'm joining Claudia's favourite things party today over at Mockingbird Hill Cottage.
Another beautiful gardening day here in southern Ontario. Hope tomorrow is the same!
I planted these paler ones to provide a little privacy from the neighbours...
