Flowers by my front step June 30, 2023Christine I love seeing these return every year. Technically, this is a tree (or a bush) but still, it *is* flowering and I like it. image description: a close-up photo of one set of blooms on a lilac tree. The flowers are light purple and the leaves are lush green. I think these are some variety of poppy. They have been growing every spring ever since we moved in over 20 years ago.
