Lilac

One thing I did notice about St Petersburg was how lovely their lilac is.  I must have come at exactly the right time because my lilac has gone over but all their lilac was looking terrific.

It takes a while for lilac to grow to be this size.  They must have great gardeners.  Plus, I love the way they’ve put different coloured lilac next to each other.  I might try this in either London or the IoW.  It won’t look like this though.
