For the three months May, June and July we are selling lilacs, roses and more. The newsletter I am working on this month is at and includes a link to "what we do and when we do it". The pictures below are probably from previous years unless they have been recently over-written.

I will over-write this picture of my work area in front of the red door frequently throughout each month. This picture of flowers on some of the lilacs we are selling will show you if they are flowering or not. Click the picture for a larger image you can save as wallpaper. Contact me.

I have heard that 'Agincourt Beauty' has large florets so I decided to compare it to one that has huge florets 'Clarks Giant'. I also like comparing the shade of purple in each variety and so here it is compared to red-purple 'Monge'.
