My lilac moment happened last Wednesday then again, it may have been Tuesday, when I looked out my bedroom window. I had expected the large pink-purple cones for some time now however, cold weather seemed to never let up. Seeing those beautiful flowers just made my day because I knew that signaled summer weather is on its way hallelujah!
Lilacs which appear in early Summer are very popular bushes-trees and their attractive sweet-smelling blooms of colorful flowers although not native to North America have established themselves very well. The Lilacs bloom for a very short time giving out a fragrance some say is a lot stronger than roses and this smell carries further also. They come in a variety of colors although pinkish-purple seems are the main one. Bush-tree size also varies from four feet to thirty apparently, there are over a thousand varieties available globally.
