It’s been a fitful spring, but at least the lilacs are in bloom.

ooohhh.. pretty lilacs… it gets waaay too hot & droughty for those to do well here… i have to satisfy myself with my giant (both the bush & the blooms are giant!) orchid-y colored azalea bush which is just about finished now… one of these days, i’ll get a picture of it when it’s in full bloom.. it’s breath-taking!
..and i was looking around my yard the other day & remarked to myself that i must like purple, ’cause i have purple iris in 3 different parts of the yard, at least 3 different variety of purple wildflowers which i have allowed to come up in my “lawn”, some mysterious purple bell-like flowers that came with the yard (twas my grandparents’ home & my grammy was quite the gardener!), and that aforementioned azalea bush.
hmm.. i think i want more…

Thanks, Syne! Are the lilacs blooming up in your mountain fastness?
Harena, azeleas are grand, aren’t they? I have a little hot pink one that gets so covered in flowers that you can’t see the leaves.
I wonder if the mysterious flowers might be campanula? The name means “bell” 🙂 Kind of an old-fashioned flower, so it could easily have been planted by your grammy. Here’s a link to some pictures: http://mysite.wanadoo-members.co.uk/lynandmalcolm/campanulas.htm

I looked at those pictures & although lovely (i think i need to get some of those… >.>), they aren’t what i’ve got… and when i thought to myself what the leaves looked like & i realized that they were probably some variety of wild hyacinth although i couldn’t find any pictures quickly online that *quite* fit. i’d take a picture but they are already finished this year.
