White Lilacs

White Lilacs

This is what I see outside my bedroom window. It is so pretty at this time of the year. There are purple lilacs on each side of the window, but the white lilacs are the star of the show.

Purple lilacs on each side of the window are about 30 years old. My husband liked them so much, he planted the white one across a walkway about 5 years ago. This way one could walk ‘under the lilacs’ – I’m sure he knows nothing of the Louisa May Alcott book of that name.
This plant is now large enough the deer fence is not as necessary. But the fence also protects iris and other flowers underneath from rabbits as well as deer.
