While visiting with a dear friend, she was showing me all she had done in her garden. When we came to her lilac bush, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. It is one of my favorite fragrances in the whole world! :) She cut some to make a bouquet for me to take home! I was so excited...doesn't take much to excite me! :) My lilac bush is lavender rather than white and is not quite at it's peak performance. Little tiny purple buds, but not flowers yet. I would think by the end of this week it will be putting on a spectacular show! I will post them then!
