Bud of Lilac
Common Lilac
Syringa vulgaris

Common Lilac are large, round headed, somewhat coarse shrubs that are used frequently in the landscape as single specimens or as background screens.
They are noted primarily for their showy, fragrant bloom.
Flowers are borne on 5-6" long panicles and come in many colors ranging from white, pink, blue, lavender to reddish-purple.
Double flowered forms are also available. Common lilac spreads by suckers and may take up a large space with time.

Taken at Granby at twilight. Tripod used. Thank you for looking.

I've got leaves Luc, but no Lilac buds yet.
We're about the same size in leaves though.
Excelent shot and well done on this composition.

Nice shot Luc,
Good composition and nicely exposed. The detail is excellent and a nice DOF.
Thanks for posting

I would never though that this is your photo. Don't get me wrong, cause it is, as always, very good but the subject is somehow strange. I used to see your captures of cute animals not plants, but it's nice to see something new.
Well done!

Hello Luc,

An out-of-your-usual-range-shot, but very nice. The details are great, tones in color warm and the composition is perfect. Really well done! TFS!


Nice composition, Luc. Great sharpness, and very good POV.
Well done.

Nice spring shot, Luc.
Well composed, nice colours and good details.
Very well done.

A lovely composition, Luc. You have made good use of the lighting and achieved excellent details of these buds and leaves. These are my second favorite flowers of spring, due mostly to the fragrance, thank you for a look into the near future of my lilac bushes.
