Recently I walked through the Lilac Arboretum in Des Moines. The arboretum has been in Des Moines for many years. There are hundreds of lilac bushes spread out over many acres of a huge park.
As you walk through the park you see rows and rows of lilac bushes.
Normally we think of lilacs as being lavender or purple. These looked almost blue.
When you look closely at the blossoms you see they are quite intricate.
These were white and pink.
I liked this bench.
And I used this water fountain.
Here in the Midwest we have HUGE lawns.
But I came to see the lilacs, not the grass.
Thanks for stopping by. I think I need to go out and mow my lawn....
