Weeping Lilac Tree

Give me odorous at sunrise,

a garden of beautiful flowers
is where I can walk undisturbed

~ Walt Whitman

These are the flowers from our new "Weeping Lilac Tree", the one the gardener recommended for replacement for our "Blue Spruce Tree".

When I asked if there was a lovely scent to them, he responded with "not too much", but oh boy, happy to report he was actually incorrect on that, perhaps thinking not so much compared to other lilacs.

Lovely lilac scents are abundant and follow me as I pass the tree. Such a bonus for us.
