It's Lilac Time


It's that time of year again, the infamous Lilac season!!! Another great reason to love spring.
Each April as I go down the escalator to the Los Angeles Flower market I love to see the buckets of lilac. Sometimes I can smell them before I see them. The lilac comes in deep rich purple tones, light lavender, white, purple with white variegated tips and a light lavender with white tips.

In LA we receive our lilac locally from Acton the first couple weeks of the month and then it comes from Temecula for approximately 3 more weeks. Of course, Mother Nature plays a role in the length of time this flowers is available. The warmer it gets the shorter the season becomes for this precious flower. If you have an opportunity to purchase a bundle of this beautiful seasonal floral - hurry...it's almost done!

Really Acton? Interesting. California is the best, I appreciate it every year I live here.
