I can always recognize a lilac tree by its heart shaped leaves.
We're lucky to have several varieties on our property and they could be quite old.
Although most of you are well into Spring, we've only just begun around here. The daffodils are still out, and we're just beginning to get tulips. The leaves are just beginning to leaf.
When we lived in Rochester, N.Y., the Highlad Park Lilac Festival was always a favorite outing, especially because it coincided with our wedding anniversary. If you're anywhere near the area, make a special trip to Highland Park. With or without the festival, the lilacs put on a tremendous show of their own.
