I was so happy to see this lovely bush flowering so well this Spring. I planted it in memory of my mother because it was her favourite flower. Some years it hasn’t done so well but this year the perfume and flowers were divine. Because of a much cooler early spring it lasted much longer. As soon as we have hot days together they go brown and drop. I took this photo late afternoon so the sun wouldn’t wipe out the white flowers. Adelaide Hills, South Australia.

I guess you could call me a shutterbug, I am for ever looking for something to photograph, and experimenting with my camera. Colour lights up my life, children, scenery, the sea in all it’s moods………native flora & fauna etc:- Please feel free to browse through the categories in my profile by clicking on them.

    Terrific capture Rita – have never heard of this plant but must say it looks lovely.

  • My Mother always grew a Lilac in England and we moved four times. They are generally soft lavender blue (or lilac) in colour. They don’t enjoy the hot summers but I have managed to keep it alive it was only tiny when I planted it. Thank you for your lovely comment.
