If I had to choose a favorite flower it would probably be the lilac. We have a huge mass of lilac bushes in our back yard. The property that we live on was at one time part of the city dump. The office building was on our land and the majority of the dump was on our neighbors land. They must have had lilacs somewhere near the office and they have grown huge. I don't mind this at all. : )
This picture is only about half of the entire bush. The scent is so powerful right now that when I went for my walk yesterday I could smell them a long time before I could see them. I wish there was a way you could bottle this scent and save it to smell all year.
