Floral obsession of the day: lilacs

Lilacs bring back many significant memories from my childhood and the great times I spent with my Grammy. She had 6 or 7 huge bushes of deep purple lilacs in her front yard. Every year she and I would snip bouquets and deliver them to her closest neighbors and friends. She swore that her lilacs smelled better than any others in the area. She was right; however, in general Lilacs produce one of the most incredible fragrances I have ever smelled, and they're gorgeous to boot! I can't wait to someday plant a bush or two in my own yard and have the pleasure of collecting beautiful bouquets with my own children and grandchildren.
