The lilacs are in bloom now and they are beautiful and fragrant.
There are several lilac bushes on our property. They are all a purple variety.
Because most of them are pretty overgrown, they will require a bit of pruning once the blooms are finished.
Here is a good site with info on pruning. I couldn't say it better myself. http://www.gardenersnet.com/lilac/lilac02.htm
Lilacs always remind me of my childhood. There were lilacs at my childhood home and my Grandparents - both in Eastern PA.
Enjoy these photos and please comment and post any of your lilac memories.
