The common Lilac (Syringa vulgaris) was lovely this year, too. We have one at the back of the garden near the woods. But Syringa meyeri blooms a little later here—usually into the first days of June. We have two bushes, both near windows. So the scent carries easily on the mild summer breezes into our home. Yum!
I snapped these photos a couple of days ago. The blooms are fading fast in the heat, but they're still fragrant.
On May 5, my "Hope Grows" entry referenced Lilacs. Next month, I'm looking forward to lots of progress in my small, sunny "kitchen garden."
