Lilac Festival 2013

The Rochester Lilac festival coincided with Mother's Day weekend this year, and everything was in bloom. Yay! In previous years, the lilacs either bloomed early and we missed them, or it was lousy weather. We added this to our list of fun weekend activities while Marilyn and Denny were visiting. 

The lilacs were larger, more beautiful and more fragrant than I can remember. 

I'm always amazed at the range of colors, beside the obvious "lilac" namesake. 

We enjoyed walking through the park, admiring the gorgeous blossoms along the way. 

Each variation different and exquisite.

And the fragrance! I couldn't resist. 

A beautiful backdrop for photos. 

Sometimes you just need to stop and smell the lilacs.
