Lilac Finally Shows off its Flowers

You will recall the budding development studies a couple of weeks ago. After six weeks of waiting, the magnolia bush put its beautiful flowers on glorious display. Then as a big surprise, the azalea plant, which had been so slow during the entire period, suddenly as if in response to my taunting was bursting out with a colourful and victorious cry: I am not going to be last as predicted by that ignorant blog writer Peter. And in third place comes the blooming lilac bush. So the rank order is official now. For the rose (in fourth place) to blossom, we will need to wait at least another week.

First: Magnolia
Second: Azalea
Third: Lilac

  1. Wow, I’ve never seen a lilac like that, it’s great! Rochester, NY usually has a big Lilac Festival, they’ve got hundreds of bushes in Highland Park, but I don’t remember seeing a two-tone one like this.

      1. Thank you for sharing this touching essay with me, Steve. The intense scent of the lilac flowers appeared to your father as a symbol of hope for a better world, where we can live in peace and harmony with each other.
