For those near Rochester, NY May 8-17, 2009
You get the Lilac Festival May 8-17.
I was fortunate to hear Dr. John at the Hollywood Bowl, here he and Joan Osborne perform at the Highland Bowl.
There will be artists, more musicians, events.
Lucky duckies, you get to smell the varietals of lilacs. More than 500 varieties from white through pinks and purples.
Lilac became Rochester, New York's official flower in 1948.
The lilac bush syringa vulgaris became New York State's official state bush in 2006.
Lilac blossom is New Hampshire's official state flower.
