Rochester Lilacs

As promised, a few shots from the 2013 Rochester Lilac Festival:




We tried going on Monday but it was, like, 45 degrees and rainy and miserable. Tried again yesterday (Tuesday) with much better results... The sun was even shining. Woo-hoo!

OK so seriously, I'm in Canada now visiting John to go to the lilac garden at Royal Botanic Garden in Burlington with 700 species of lilacs…will post duelling lilac photos on my blog soon.

Hilarious!

Love and lilacs,
Julia

Ricky Hanson says, beautiful photos, I can almost smell the flowers.

Thanks Ricky! They were pretty spectacular, and aromatic too. I guess they're mostly gone by now (??) -- at least, the ones by our house are, but maybe the upstate NY ones last longer...
