LILACS by Sabine Ocker

False blue,
Color of lilac.
Heart-leaves of lilac all over New England,
Roots of lilac under all the soil of New England,
Lilac in me because I am New England

Amy Lowell (1874-1925)

A late spring offering of a small part of my flower image collection featuring photographs of the lilac, one of my all time favorites. I can never get enough of that heady perfume, bringing good tidings of warmer weather and sunny days ahead.
Happy Memorial Day!
