This is a photo I took (last year?) of one of the specialty lilacs I bought at the Hulda Klager lilac farm in Woodland Washington. It's an actual National Historical Site now!
I go every year since I bought my cottage from whom I was renting it and am now free to add new lilacs to the yard from this farm where they carry lilacs bred years ago by Hulda herself.
This one is a favorite (my absolute favorite is still an old fashioned purple lilac with double or triple flowerettes!) This one in a lovely shade of pink has such a sweet scent.
Its the "Katherine Havemeyer" lilac.
Here I displayed it on my living room mantel.I can't wait for it to bloom this year - and yes, it has the start of flowers on it already. But due to our extra cold and rainy Seattle weather this year, its a month off or so yet.
