California Lilac Dreaming


Back when I lived in Milton Keynes, my Mum made the brilliant decision to buy and plant a California lilac tree and it grew so quickly and beautifully over the next few years until, every summer like clockwork, the tree would spring to life and flower with bright, blue blooms which attracted bees and butterflies into the garden and kept the path below nice and shady too. It was my favourite tree in the garden, and as soon as the warmer months rolled around I would take my camera outside and get plenty of photos both for myself and for Mum so she would have photos of her tree, which was handy as after the very cold and wintry 2010 blizzard we had, the frost got to the tree and it never recovered, but we still have these photos to remember it by.
