When you can’t see color on these dull March days, time to save a date for something spectacular that happens every May; at least for those New Englanders that is. When all of us seem color blind from winter’s dullness, perhaps it's time for a refresher course on some brilliant colors and something to set your senses on fire.
So save this date in May. Schedule your time for Lilac Sunday at the Arnold Arboretum, May 12, 2013. And if you need further convincing, here’s one from the archives to refresh the color blind memory with this favorite blossom of spring. http://blog.bilowzassociates.com/2010/03/sweet-scent-of-lilacs.html
Lilacs in New England are as big as cherry blossoms in DC. As Ivan Albright pointed out, “A color is as strong as the impression it creates.”
And if you think this above image is a Cherry Blossom, here's the link for more info on this tad unusual Lilac to add to your color repertoire this spring. http://blog.bilowzassociates.com/2012/05/time-to-fert-lime.html
