  1. Beautiful photo. Lilacs are one of my absolute favorite flowers. We have a dwarf lilac bush that produces beautiful blooms every spring or every two years depending on weather conditions, etc. The lilacs also have such a heavenly fragrance that I love and like to cut sprigs with blooms and bring them inside to let the fragrance permeate through the house.
