We had a lot of lilac blooms early this season. The weather has been so funny lately the plant life is confused. Lilac’s have a very short bloom cycle but they are so magnificent with their dark green foliage and impressive blooms. The perfume from a lilac in bloom can be enjoyed from a distance. Many people plant them to offer privacy and for the enjoyment of the fragrance and visually stunning blooms.
This lilac is just a small bush just outside my mother’s home. It hasn’t yet bloomed as you can see and yes that is snow. Insert wild Alberta weather joke here. There is something incredible about seeing such a beautiful blossom about to erupt and green foliage under a blanket of slushy snow.
Imagine our surprise to wake up and find snow outside this morning…
