Do you love lilacs? I do. I love their sweet fragrance, their old fashion look, all the lavender and purple blooms. And I love how hardy they are. With our eccentric spring weather here in northern Nevada I appreciate a tough lilac bush.
We moved into our house during the month of October, 23 years ago. No lilacs were blooming then, but the lilac bushes still made a great natural border between our house and two of our neighbors houses.

I jumped for joy our first spring at our house when the lilacs bloomed!! Their huge!!! Needless to say I have spent 23 springs photographing, making bouquets and loving our lilacs!
