Lilac Heaven! Lilacia Park

1 Comment

If you don’t get a chance to come to Chicago land and see Lilacia Park yourself, when my husband and I visited it last Sunday, I shot some photos to share with you:

This park, filled with dozens of different types of lilacs, shouts, “Spring is HERE!!” I loved stopping and smelling the flowers. Lilacs remind me of both of the farms I grew up on because we had huge lilac bushes that we would pick blooms from each spring. I wanted to pick some of Lilacia Park’s flowers, but…

I decided to leave them for everyone else to enjoy. If you get a chance to visit this place, please do! If you need more lilac inspiration, check out this book:
Lilacs: A Gardener’s Encyclopedia

Stephen and I enjoyed sitting in the sunshine, stopping to smell all the different types of lilacs, and seeing all the joyful people around the park.

Enjoy!

Hello Friends, A curious, kind, practical, and energetic writer and teacher is one way to describe me. I enjoy thinking about transitions--in schools, churches, families, relationships, and even countries. I'm passionate about learning, and I love working with students. Stop by often to see which kind of transition I'm thinking about, and I would appreciate hearing your thoughts. Peace! ~Mary Hope

  1. So beautiful! I love lilac. My spring lilac is blossoming too for two weeks now and even survived a late snow. It smells heavenly!
