Not as showy as the flowers you buy in the grocery store, but multi stemmed and for some reason, all lilac.
Which is fine with me because the color goes well with my other spring bloomer the miniature daffs. How I wish I had planted more than just this one clump.
The two flowers together made a spring posy to bring into the house where their fragrance fills the air. David and I discussed the smell, which I thought quite spicy, with a hint of sweetness. He thought the smell reminded him of Tabac soap. Many years ago his father had a German penfriend and when he came to visit he brought some of this soap as a gift. My stocks triggered his memory from the past.
