Rupert Brooke and my French Lilacs...

"Just now the lilac is in bloom,
All before my little room;"

Rupert Brooke

During these late spring days, not only do my peonies bloom, but so do my French lilacs. They are a bit different from the old-fashioned purple lilacs. They are more delicate in nature and a paler lavender as well.

My bushes are right outside my parlor window. (I like saying that better than living room!)

This past week I held two meetings during the twilight hours with the windows wide open, and the scent was so strong that several folks commented on it.

The bushes are probably too close to the house, too close to the windows, but nonetheless, I love living in a bit of a forest right here in Indiana at the House at White Picket Gardens.

Here is a photo from my French lilac tree. If only, if only you could smell it!

Until tomorrow.

I'm so jealous of your garden! Be careful what you wish for. With modern technology, the good news is we just might be able to smell them one day.
The bad news...that day may be the day you fertilized.

I do fertilize with natural components so that would not be so lovely! I must say my garden is spectacular, but I do spend a great deal of time working in it and sharing it with friends!

It shows.
I don't know where you find the time.
