Craigleith Station Lilacs

Just down the road a piece, is a retired railway station turned visitors centre. This is what surrounds the station in May.

An enterprising person planted lilacs around this railway station, and along the rail tracks for a bit.  The story dates back many decades.  The tracks have been lifted and  is now a walking/bicycle path. Lilacs grow well in our area. We have several bushes in our yard.  The picture below is of the blooms picked and hung to dry in the kitchen. 

We 'helped' ourselves to the white ones....I'd love to get a white bush started.
Take a deep breathe....lovely isn't it?
Happy Tuesday,
