They are one of my favorite spring flowers and I can't imagine a garden without lilacs.
These small, flowering trees or shrubs fill the air and the yard with their pleasant fragrance in late spring and early summer.
In all times lilacs inspired the imagination of artist, poets and song writers, in their endeavor to depict the essence of spring and romance.
Their large panicles of flowers in all shades of purple, white, dark burgundy, pale yellow, pink and lilac of course, are springtime delight. These, in the pictures are common lilacs.
The next one is a wild lilac with pale pink flowers.
According to the language of flowers (floriography) the meaning of purple lilac is first emotion of love and white lilacs symbolize youthful innocence, memories.
Here are two lilac branches, one with a lovely, dark burgundy flower, the other with white lilac flowers.
