It may not be the prettiest, elegant and majestic tree if compared to oak trees or maple trees, but common lilacs have qualities many other trees lack : They produce beautifully abundant flowers which exhume the most exquisite of perfumes. Each year a bouquet graces my home, filling the air with its exuberant fragrance. Flowers are so therapeutic. Looking at them and caring for them makes me feel lighter and happier. And a few bouquets of lilacs is a wonderful way to add a note of cheerfulness in my home.
Climbing honeysuckle is in bloom at the moment, and in the coming days irises will reveal their beautiful blooms, and shortly after, peonies and roses will make their grand entrance in the garden. What a delight for the eyes it will be !
Happy Summer dear friends !
