Lilac Time in Midcoast Maine

THIS IS MY FAVORITE TIME OF YEAR

EXCEPT FOR OCTOBER
Trouble with Wisteria??Just found out to cut roots back On the wisteria,

also add bone meal and fertilze early spring.



Lilac's and roses are my favorites. The whole town smells of lilac's. I ride with the window's down in the car they are all along the roads with the sea air and smell of lilacs it is wonderful.









I also have the white lilac's. I purchased a red 8 years ago 2 years later it bloomed and it was the same color as my English Lilac's. When buying off season caveat emptor . The tags can be wrong. I purchased an expensive red French Lilac. Of course they said Sorry.. Well I have nnever been back



You have to watch for mold up here in maine, and spiders. This is a plant you should have , it smells so great and just gets more beautiful every year..



Charles Joly red french below I thought I bought
3 years later it bloomed not this RED LILAC











Here are a few other Lilac's they look wonderful mixed. The hedges are beautiful.


I like the Moskvy Lilac , but I won't buy unless it is in bloom.




This week I have to go down the street there are loads of Englich Lilacs growing wild.. I always pick arm losds and put them everywhere.





Well I just got TAGED by Renee's "Tells all"
so it will be the tenth picture of one of my files on next post.. Ta Ta for now..
