after work, my beau and i went to the lilac festival. the festival takes place on about 20 acres of rolling hills in highland park. there are over 500 DIFFERENT varieties of lilacs planted which makes the entire park and surrounding areas smell absolutely LOVELY. during the bloom season - i drive through the park with all the windows down and you can smell them for MILES. you can see the rest of our pics, including the blooming onion, here.
yes, there are three of me - click and see for yourself!
