Arboretum Garden and it's Lilac Collection



The Arboterum Graden is one of the four outdoor gardens of the Royal Botanical Garden. It features one of the world's largest lilac collections - 600 varieties - extensive magnolia and crabapple collection, rhododendrons, conifers, hedges, and native Ontario trees and shrubs.


For now, I will concentrate on the Lilac celebration. Lilac is in full bloom at the moment and they have such beautiful and fragrant flowers.





I am thinking of the lilac-trees, That shook their purple plumes, And when the sash was open, Shed fragrance through the room.

- Mrs. Anna S. Stephens, The Old Apple-Tree

I wonder if you became enchanted by the smell of those great looking flowers. Lovely!

Enchanted is an understatement! I felt like a fairy in those Gardens. Hoping from one flower to another, being one with nature.

Thanks Juleste!
