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.
