Thinking of the lilac trees

Almost purple and not quite pink, demure but not too sweet. Meet lilac, my favourite colour of the day.
I am thinking of the lilac-trees
That shook their purple plumes
And when the sash was open
Shed fragrance through the room

Pretty pictures from here.
Wonderful poem from here.
