I have six lilac bushes and during the years when I planted them I was not keeping good records so I don’t know their names. These two were the second and third to bloom after the white one. Two are not going to bloom this year and the one that I haven’t photographed yet is almost black. It has been so gloomy and windy that I haven’t been able to get a halfway decent shot of it, but hopefully this weekend the weather will cooperate. I broke down and turned the heat on tonight… it was 52 degrees in here when I got home from work. I sure hope we have a few weeks of spring before summer gets here! Stay warm everyone… I think it is pretty much the same all around!
I completely forgot that I have Dwarf Korean Lilac too… it’s not blooming yet and they are pretty stinky. I’ll never forget the year I moved to jewel and was anxious for them to bloom… boy was I disappointed after sticking my nose into one of the blooms!
