Three years ago I bought mom a lilac for mother's day. It was labeled a white lilac. It had white flowers on it for cryin' out loud. Didn't know that potted lilacs need a year or two to get comfy in their new homes before they bloom in the ground. Well, that puppy IS blooming this spring. However, the lilac is lilac. I'm waiting to see if the blooms whiten up as they mature. I mean, it's not like I'm going to take it back or anything, it's just hello is there something about lilac genetics I missed out on?

On another note all the irises I transplanted last year are up, looking forward to finding out who is where. All the daylilies are up, the snails are happy.

Hmmmm.... that seems a little strange. Oh well, what's a white lilac anyway? You would have to call it a "white" (rather than a "lilac"... Get it...? Sorry...bad joke.)

It's a very good joke. :-) Alleged white blossom lilac? Oh well, it's pretty and it smells good. Just don't get to close or you'll end up with a snootful of rainwater.
