  2. Now I’ll have to go out and smell mine so I can get the complete effect.

    • I love that scent, Meanderer…seems that it’s fading now, though…what a quick passing of their season in bloom.

  5. Beautiful macros. I can almost smell their heavenly scent… though I can’t bring them in the house anymore because they set off sneezing fits.
    Did I ever tell you there’s a Latvian tradition much like the search for a four-leaf clover…. where once in awhile you find a lilac flower with five petals for good luck? (I looked in your shots and didn’t see one.) 😀

    • You have mentioned that Latvian tradition, Gunta, although I had forgotten that it was for Lilac…. Thank you for checking….I didn’t find any five-petaled flowers either…. 🙂

  11. I’ve never seen a pink lilac, but I understand that they are sometimes almost purple and there are white ones too. Mine were a soft lilac/blue/purple color depending on the light. I should plant one now at the new house. I love the scent. These photos are really fine, Scott. I got a real sense of them through the images.
