Up In The Air!

This is sort of a repeat from last spring, but new photo!  The Herbal Husband has promised to stay home next March, because that is the time we need to prune a lot of our shrubs.  This one needs to be trimmed right after it is finished blooming.  It hopefully will be done soon!  The blooms are waaay up in the bush rather than at nose level.  This is Syringa vulgaris 'Sensation'.  It is a beautiful purple color with a white edge to it.  Syringa vulgaris is an edible flower.  You can use them to decorate cakes or dessert plates.  Make sure you eat organically grown flowers, nothing sprayed or chemically treated.  Hope you are having a good day wherever you are.  We are off to a one year old's birthday party!  I think it is mostly to get the adults together!
