Last week, I showed you two of our lilac varieties - the Old Fashioned and the Skidmore. This week, our two other varieties have bloomed, so here they are, as promised!
First up, the Dwarf Korean Lilacs. We have three of these bushes right by the garage door we go in and out of about a million times a day, so we enjoy their fragrance a lot!
Don't you want to just stick your snooter in there and smell them?
As you can see, they are lighter in color than the varieties I showed you on Sunday.
Also lighter is the other lilac that came into bloom this week, the Miss Kim Lilac. Here is what they looked like on Thursday:
...and here they are today!
Let's go in for a close up!
Aren't they a lovely lavender color? They are especially fragrant; we can smell their blossoms from all the way up on the upper deck. Here's what they look like from there:
If you could turn to the right a bit in the picture above, just on the other side of the fence are the Snowball Viburnum I mentioned last week. They're nice and white now! Check 'em out!
For more photos, please feel free to visit our FlickR album!
I think it's time to let Mom grab some coffee, and head out on the deck with us to enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of Spring!
Have a Serene Saturday!
