A very pretty flower. Very much at home in the cottage the mauveish lilac opening up to a white petal.

Very pretty shot - I love the scent of these. Must plant out my lilac ones from Hayloft ... not sure if they’ll bloom this summer.

yes the scent is lovely isn't it?
I have white, pale pink and lilac ones. They look wonderful in the evening light.
