Lilacs Blooming in Alaskan Mountains
I found this beautiful blooming lilac bush in Skagway, Alaska. It was the first of June and in most of the part of the U.S. where I am a frequent visitor, the lilacs had already bloomed months before. It was a pleasant surprise to see lilacs in June. Of course, lilacs do not normally grow in the desert where I have been living for many years. If you do see a bush now and then, the flowers come on in January. Now that I live on the side of a mountain at the mouth of a canyon at over 5000 feet above sea level, I am looking forward to seeing more lilacs blooming.
