Sunday, tomorrow, is Mother’s Day and the Arnold Arboretum‘s famous Lilac Sunday. The thing about nature is that, not unlike my mother, myself and my daughter, it does things it’s own way. There is not much you can do to steer it in another direction. So, Lilac Sunday can be a bit of a hit or a miss. This year, the lilacs are in bloom, perhaps not in full bloom, but plenty of trees have flowered. The scent is intoxicating as well. For Lilac Sunday there will be food trucks for a fun lunch or an early dinner on site and as you will see below, there are plenty of flowers and plants to take in. It doesn’t have to just be all about the lilacs.
