Here are some of the pictures I took on our most recent outing to Lilacia Park.
Now, lilacs are some of the loveliest flowers I know of. (I have been saying that about a lot of flowers lately) They smell beautiful and they are just so delicate.
If you have never been to Lilacia Park, let me give you a little background information. Lilacia Park was started by Colonel William Plum and his wife, Helen. They were both enraptured by the lilacs and started to cultivate two lilac bushes. However when the Colonel’s wife passed away, his interest in his estate vanished and he offered his collections for sale. However, his offer was shot down when people told him that the lilacs should remain in their original location. When the Colonel passed away some three years later, he stated in his will that the estate be given to the local people as a public park.
When we went, most of their flowers were in full bloom. Now, Lilacia Park is full of tulips. (Most of my pictures are of tulips.) But they are all different colors so wherever you turn, there are gorgeous splashes of color. On to the pictures!
That’s all from me. Thanks for reading!
