I got to thinking ~ are Lilacs wildflowers? You find the most beautiful bushes at old homesteads, farms and such. Where did they come from, who planted them there? I do not think my grandmother went to the garden center or mercantile to buy a lilac bush….
So I tried to do some research and although there are plenty of websites out there about lilacs ~ I could not find anything to suit my curiosities. I guess I will just continue my love affair with them ~ don’t try to give me anything lilac scented ~ I want the real thing, or nothing at all!
Although I love them all, I like the darker purple the best This lighter mauve is what I have now ~ once we get a new house, I will have a new lilac bush!
