Beauty of Moscow Lilac

Syringa vulgaris ‘Krasavitsa Moskvy’

White lilac with double blooms and very fragrant. Flowers have a touch of pink, turning white in full bloom.

Bred in Russia by hybridist Leonid Kolesnikov.
Said to be very resistant to pests and disease. Reaches 15′ high and spreads 6-12′ wide, though I’ve had mine for 3 years and it is just a whispy stick or two.

The photo is the total bloom production for the year.

Ideal for zones 3-7. this lilac takes full sun to partial shade.

If you are looking for deer resistant shrubs, choose a lilac.

Garden Bloggers Bloom Day March 15, 2012


Someday soon this will be loaded with Saturn or donut peaches.


Short bloom time for this slow grower.

Daffodils are naturalizing. Naturalization also means Take Over The World. But that is OK, it's a short bloom time.

This is my circle garden, a reclaimed space in a neighborhood circle drive. Some day soon it will be the potager, or a kitchen garden filled with herbs and vegetables.


Inspired by the words of Elizabeth Lawrence, “We can have flowers nearly every month of the year,” Carol of May Dreams Gardens started Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. On the 15th of every month, garden bloggers from all over the world publish what is currently blooming in their gardens.

Thank You friends

Cool, cool Taneycomo trout lake just below the Table Rock Dam. Best trout fishing in the state!

Branson’s Table Rock Lake

Table Rock Lake highlights include : a gorgous State Park  offers Marina Discounts for Table Rock Campers, the Table Rock Dam tour and the Shepherd of the Hills fish hatchery.

< This is Taneycomo. Good place to be during a hot summer day.
