Thanks Sticki, Paul, Sixpence, Lauram and Homebird ...
definitely my favourite lilac and seems to like growing with the clematis ...

28 Apr, 2011

 

Hey, TT, wonderful combination! I've seen this colour of lilac in one of the village garden. Pale pink. Never seen it before. I think I will ask for some offshoots, as I intend edging the garden with lilac of all colours I could find.
Do you know the name of the lilac in the picture?

28 Apr, 2011

 

Hi Dawn ...
I'll try to find the name for you ...
Good idea to ask the lilac owner in the village if you can take some cuttings... I've found it is quite easy to make new plants... start off as many cuttings as you can to give yourself the best chance of success ...

Hi Janey ... thanks ...
... the lilac aroma is wonderful ..

8 May, 2011

 

I bet it is....I reckon the hardy shrubs and trees have loved the very cold winter, blossoms this year are extra lovely!

8 May, 2011

 

Yes... anything which has survived the freezing winter seems to have been putting on more growth than usual... even the smaller perennials ...

8 May, 2011

 

What a lovely mingle!

Thanks Wagger :o)

Hi Annella... Thanks :o)))

Both seem to gently invite you to pull your garden chair a bit closer and to enjoy the beautiful scent along with the warm rays of spring sunshine. Hope you get to do that, but with such a lovely garden you likely haven't got much time to sit down. Love a lot of your other pictures as well! Thanks for sharing them and giving me ideas.

14 May, 2011

 

Thank you 1poodle11 ...
This part of my garden gets a lot of sunshine, and the lilac scent is super ... there is a bench nearby ... but I don't really get much chance to sit there !

15 May, 2011

 

thats very nice

16 May, 2011

 

Fantastic, how did I miss this? Since seeing this last year, I have bought a little lilac and planted it by my arch. It's not really big enough yet, but will be next year and there are lots of blooms:-)

17 May, 2011

 

Just seen this myself TT lovely..I can smell it from here...

21 Jun, 2011

 

Such a pretty picture lovely :)

26 Jun, 2011

 

Love it...it's because of your pic last year that I planted a little lilac by my arch, hoping for a similar effect:-)

29 Jun, 2011

 

Thanks Stevie, Bornagain, Crissue and Whdebor ...
It is lucky that these two both bloom together at about the same time each year :o)

15 Sep, 2011

 

Hi Mousybrown ...

Glad you like my pic. The scent from that lilac is gorgeous, and I was lucky enough that the top part of the lilac blossomed again, end of August ... so enjoyed some sniffs of that lovely perfume again ... xxx

15 Sep, 2011

 

This is just so beautiful.

20 Sep, 2011

 

Thanks Dwyllis ...
In springtime, these oblige me by flowering at the same time. :o)

20 Sep, 2011

 

Did you ever get around to tracing this lilac Terratoonie ?and do you have a name for the clematis ?...stunning combination !

17 May, 2012

 

Hi Susie ..
I've just looked at my other photo ...
http://www.growsonyou.com/photo/slideshow/78669-under-my-garden-arch/member/terratoonie

and on there I made a guess ...
Syringa meyeri spontanea 'palibin' ..

not sure about the Clematis ...
I'll put another comment here if I find it.
There are more pics. of the lilac on my blog ...

Thank you, Wildrose.
The scent of the miniature lilac is probably my favourite of all the different perfumed shrubs in my gardens. :o)

13 Jul, 2012

 

Yes, it is a lovely scent - very special.
