Have any of you seen a Lilac tree that looked like this and 30 feet high??
The smell was amazing (of Lilacs) and I know they aren't a vine so how is this possible? Some kind of weird hybrid? I'll try to get some better shots

Looks like wisteria to me.

I have a dark purple iris blooming. I had 2 plants so gave a friend one.

A few of my roses have started blooming.

Columbine is just finishing up. Time to remove the seed heads then walk the woods next to my house to throw seed.

Rose campion will be blooming this week.

Lilacs are starting to fade now, Irises are opening.

The pink/red chestnut trees are in full bloom around here. I have never seen pink chestnut trees before moving here, and around here there are many of them.

Irises now, and the azaleas are still going strong. Roses have buds but no blooms yet.

Absolutely nothing. Nothing that's in the ground, anyway.

I tried for years to always have something blooming, but it never quite worked out. It didn't help that we moved every so often.

Every place in which I've lived for more than a year has something that flowers. The exception (almost) was the place that I, we, lived in for about 8 months. I don't remember what they were, but I planted some pips in the barren side raised bed. I don't know if they made it. No one was going to care for them. I'd like to think that they bloomed and spread.
