A Trip to the Lilac Gardens

 Once upon a time I took the oldest kids here. It's only 15 miles from our house but it's the first time we've been there in about 10 years.

I am a fan of the traditinal lilac. I like the color and the scent, but these white ones were just gorgouws. They were so startling against the green foilage.

The boys had a great time playing games in between the rows. Preston wants to move out there. I can imagine how fun it would be to play there all summer long.




 This bush was a very delicate pink color. Beautiful!


 Had to throw in the windmill. They are the skyscrapers of the planes. When I was a kid we had one right by the garden. I would climb up to the platform and sit and enjoy the breeze. Now I'm scared to death to climb up there.





 Look at how big those blossoms are!



It was just such a pleasant morning, walking among the rows and rows of lilacs. This is a family farm that has been raising lilacs just for beauty for several generations. It was a real treat for us.
