I need more lilacs in my yard.
I have this small white blossom bush and a smaller light purple one.
Lilacs always make me think of my dad. He loves lilacs and we had several bushes in our yard growing up--white, lavender, dark purple. . .double and single blossoms. He gained his love of lilacs from his mother. She had beautiful flower gardens, or so I hear. She died when he was 17 or 18. When he got married and moved away he took starts from his mother's lilac and planted them wherever he moved (my uncle still owns the house they grew up in).
He told me I could have a start for my yard. It's a double blossom purple lilac. I can't wait.
