I love Rochester, NY. It has a lot to offer. One of the parks was planted with oodles of lilac bushes, among other flowering trees and plants. When I noticed a lilac in bloom on my way to school I decided to take advantage of the nice weather, grab Glitterfairy77 and the grandkids, and go to the park after school. We were not disappointed! We had a nice little walk, and I was delighted to see how even my 7 year old grandson responded to the natural beauty - even with the allure of the playground (but yes, we DID let the kids play on it after a stroll). We couldn't park near the lilac hill, but I did a slow drive by and we took pix and breathed deeply of their fragrance.
