Boomerang Lilac

When I came here in the US I vow to myself to plant trees or shrubs or flowers or evergreens every year and I did. Unfortunately my three pear trees didn't make it  but my three peach trees are doing good. Aside from it my three evergreens are already tall and many of the flowers that I planted are already giving beautiful blossoms. This year I choose to plant boomerang lilac. Lilac usually only blooms in Spring and it will take only 2 or three weeks and they are gone. This boomerang lilac will re-bloom in mid-summer until Fall to frost. When I knew it I was interested right away. When our local nursery opened this Spring I went to see it and I did bought one. The price is costly but oh well I love to see it bloom and smell the heavenly scent.

                           My newly planted boomerang lilac. The color is more on pinkish than purple.

                 This is the color of our lilac behind our house. Hubby said his mother planted this many moon ago. This one is purple in color.

                                               I am linking this post to GREEN MONDAY.

hi visiting from Green Monday...
that's one of the good things in the US 'no? the cool weather makes flowers bloom beautifully. It's quite hard to grow flowers here in the Phils. if you're not living in cool places like Tagaytay and Bagiuo.

You ever cross the Ambassador bridge to Windsor Canada?
