Synaesthesia by Althytrion Synaesthesia by Althytrion
Syringa vulgaris 'Sensation', one of our four lilacs, is now in bloom! :aww: Whenever our lilacs are flowering they fill the garden with their wonderful fragrance, especially in the evening when the air is still warm and humid, after a typical spring day in April with sun and some rain. It is a shame that I cannot send this perfume via WWW to you ... but those who have already experienced this sensation will always associate it with lilac - and never forget it. :)

Beautiful! I have 4 lilacs dotted around the garden but they are all very young and only the larger one has bloomed. Our next door neighbour had the most beautiful lilac tree in his garden but he sadly died quite suddenly in January and his very overgrown garden was completely cleared, including the lilac tree, when the house was put up for sale. I miss the blossom. And him, of course. The house at the bottom of our garden has a small lilac tree though, and that looks very pretty against our back fence.

This is really a shame that the garden of your neighbour was completely cleared. :( Even if overgrown, old gardens often have a very distinct charm that can be preserved if the maintenance is performed in a careful way. For instance, old trees such as this lilac shrub, can be cut in a way that they regenerate happily and can then be integrated into a new garden design. Such a procedure requires, however, knowledge, a certain respect and patience. ;)

When my wife saw our house and the surrounding garden for the first time, it was spring, and everything in the garden was in bloom, so she immediately fell in love with it. Today, several shrubs and plants from that time are still existing, only the fruit-trees and a conifer had to be felled, due to their age and plant diseases. :)

Thank you very much, dear Tara! :hug:

Well, I don't think they have pulled the lilac up at the roots. I imagine there is still a little stump. So the new owners might let it grow back. And it was so well established I doubt it would take long to grow back. But, sadly, people seem to be obsessed with their boring lawns, so they might just pull it up when they move in. :(

I think spring is the best time for viewing a garden, especially for the first time. :)

Thank you very much, dear Tanya! :hug:

Since Syringa contains some 20 species, I looked for a variety that could possibly stand the warmer Mediterranean climates, like that in Israel. Although the natural distribution of Syringa vulgaris reaches southwards to Greece, and other species are native even to drier countries such as Afghanistan, they always prefer higher elevations in those areas, with more humidity. So I guess lilac will only survive in Israel with a lot of care. As an alternative, the fragrant Melia azederach can be planted there, commonly called for instance Syringa Berrytree, Persian Lilac, or אזדרכת מצויה. ;)

Where there is light there is always shadow as well! :P
It is interesting that the fruits of these trees are poisonous to humans, due to neurotoxins, but not to birds who feed so excessively on them until they reach a 'drunken' state ... This explains what happens to your car, unfortunately. :o
