Common Lilac(Syringa Vulgaris)a family heirloom

I am nominating my Lilac, this sucker was planted in my garden 35 years ago. My plant originated from my husbands family as 3 generations have handed down suckers from the original.
Highly fragrant this Common lilac is a species & a member of the olive family flowering in spring from mid May to June. It has been selected by Plantwatch as a key indicator plant for plant phenology as a biological weather instrument.
Leafing out signals time to sow cool season vegetables,in bloom time to fertilize lawn & plant bush beans,tomatoes,peppers,& tender annuals. When blooms fade can plant out your cukes,squash


And they smell heavenly!! :heart:
