There were an abundance of Lilacs this Spring in Santa Fe. Lilacs are a hearty plant that adapt to different climates- they grow along the east coast as well as the mid west. This Spring walking down the street was a scent infusion of lilac aroma- so much I felt the need to photograph the purple explosion! Luckily, we have had a wet winter and a wet spring- so no skimping on the blossoms! When you grow up in a wet climate it is easy to take for granted the flora and fauna but when you are in the high desert the blossoms are noticeable and punctuating against the arid landscape that it is hard to pass by without noticing.
