My fave at the farm, "Pink Ruth".

I made it out to the Hulda Klager Lilac Gardens in Woodland, Washington on Thursday afternoon and got a real dose of Spring. Hulda Klager began working with lilacs on her farm in 1905, and by 1910 developed fourteen new varieties. Eventually sold by Hulda's family, the gardens and farm buildings were saved from housing development by the local garden club and maintained today by the Lilac Society. Unfortunately, there is now a big townhouse development along one side of the property. Still, the gardens are beautiful.

Have a great weekend.

I love the new look of your blog and your photos are very nice. I want to go live on that farm.
