It's Lilac Time

The annual Lilac Festival is going strong here in the Rochester area. Everything at all the shops around town is focusing on lilacs. If you have allergies walking amoung HUNDREDS of lilac bushes can be crazy! There is more to the festival than lilacs, with entertainment, craft show, plant sale and more. My daughter saw Martha Stewart there this week when she went. She was taping a segment for her show, which is on today. Apparently we even have a lilac which has been named after her. Trust me when I tell you that Yankee Candles Lilac smells nothing like lilacs! I did find some cream in a shop here in the village where I work that really does smell like Lilacs. I need to go back and see who makes it. Over 200,000 people visit for the festival each year and many people in our area have NEVER been. We hope to get there Sunday afternoon. It is the final day, that is if P gets this project finished and the weather straightens out....dark and rainy right now.....



I can't say I'm very excited about the prospect, but there is no one else to help P out and I really want the thing to get built so we can move all the "stuff" out of the back bedroom!!!!! Ours will be painted white, not baby blue!

Oh, I LOVE Lilacs! They smell so good. I wish we lived closer to wherever you live!

That sounds like a fun time, I love craft fairs but have never been to a flower one.

I have never seen or smelled a real lilac. The Yankee candle I got just to see and it was too strong for me. I'm glad to hear that it really doesn't smell like that. They sure are pretty and I daydream of having a tree beside an open window with the breeze blowing the smell into the house!
