Year 2 – May 28, 2013 Bloomerang Lilac
The good news is that by the time I am done with this project, I probably would know most of the plants around my house. This fragrant flower is at the corner of my house. It is a lilac family. This lilac is exciting for a few reasons. First and foremost, it reblooms! (I will need to pay better attention to see if it really reblooms) It offers the usual late spring lilac bloom; then it blooms strongly again in midsummer, sometimes blooming right up until the first frost. It’s also a great lilac because of its size. At about 4-by-4, this is a lilac for small gardens, tight spaces and mixed borders.
I shot this picture near dusk with some interesting white cloud that looks like some ray if lights.
