I Love Lilacs!

"In the dooryard fronting an old farm-house near the white-wash'd palings,
Stands the lilac-bush tall-growing with heart-shaped leaves of rich green,
with many a pointed blossom rising delicate, with the perfume strong I love,
With every leaf a miracle - and from this bush in the dooryard,
With delicate-color'd blossoms and heart-shaped leaves of rich green,
A sprig with its flower I break."
-  Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass
Pretty poster this year!
My two Rochester friends, Donna and Lori, sent me lilac photos, my favorite flower.  Highland Park in my hometown of Rochester, NY  has the world's largest Lilac Festival, going on now May 11-20
