I went to the Arnold Arboretum the other day to enjoy the lilacs at their peak. A lot of other people had the same idea! They actually cancelled Lilac Sunday this year because the weather was rainy & windy; it didn't end up as stormy as forecast, but it still wouldn't have been a fun day for festivities.
The lilacs were, as always, spectacular. I also took in the shrub & vine garden, and the bonsai collection. ( Bonsai! )
Even the birds love the lilacs.
I'm glad I made it there before it got too hot out.
