Wordless Wednesday – Lilacs

Wordless Wednesday … man that might be hard for me!  I always have something to say 🙂

The first few pictures are of my pink lilac tree (Syringa v. Beauty of Moscow).  It is 2 years old and this is the first year we have blooms.  The tiny flowers are pink until they open, and then they transform to white.  It is very pretty!

This next little shrub is called Syringa meyeri ‘Palibin’.  We bought it at the same time as the Beauty of Moscow and just the same, this year is the first that it is blooming.  It wasn’t on my “list” of plants to buy, but I was convinced to give it a try  by the owner of the nursery.  I have to say that I am pleased that I did as it gives off a lovely fragrance, much stronger than the lilac tree.

The next photos are of lilac that doesn’t belong to me.  I drive through a lovely little village called Drumconrath to bring two of my kids Irish dancing.  I passed this lilac tree a few times before I decided that I had to stop and take some pictures.  I love the darker color of the blooms!

As it happened, the owner was outside when I stopped to take pictures.  She is a lovely woman, and offered for me to take some home with me! She didn’t know the variety of lilac, unfortunately.

I had fun taking pictures of the flowers at home.  I love taking pictures of flowers! 🙂

    • Ah thank you Michele! I do like being able to put my pictures somewhere, so it seemed like a good idea in this wordless Wednesday format. Fun to try something new 🙂 Dana

  1. Really gorgeous pictures! I love lilacs too but don’t have any in this garden….yet. I must find a spot for one! I would definitely go for a fragrant variety as I think the smell is heavenly. Very cool you met the lady in town with the big lilac bush. Was it fragrant? I like your little one…’Palibin.’

    • Thank you for the lovely compliment! The darker lilac was fragrant, but not as much as I thought it would be. I was hoping the room would fill with the sweet smell, but it was lack-luster (unfortunately!). Funny though, that I could smell the little one when not even standing next to it! Nevertheless, I would still like to get a darker colored lilac and I even have the place picked out. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! Dana
