I brought it back from Ohio about 5 years ago, and it has just sat there, not grown much, and so this year's bloom is a great treat. Lilacs are one of my favorite plants, and this one is a start from my mother's lilac bush, which she got from her mother's bush.
Also blooming- the weeping cherry tree, a few remaining daffodils, hyacinths and tulips, the wood violets, periwinkle, phlox, rock cress, pansies, and wisteria.
These mini-iris have been a highlight for me - I have dark purple, this light blue, and the white and yellow ones I blogged about a few days ago. Do you see the grape hyacinths at the bottom of the iris? I think more of those in front of these irises would be a good combination to put together.
