This Friday we're visiting the archives for a trip to Woodland, WA and the Hulda Klager lilac garden.
Many of the original buildings are still on the property,
including the family home, which is intact and has many of the residents' clothes and other items on display. The rooms are very small, fairly dark, and there were a lot of people milling around, so it was very, very challenging to get a good picture.
But on to the gardens, and the real subject of this week's FF post. The lilacs.
I've never seen so many different lilacs in one place. Hulda Klager grew, hybridized and tended to all this plant material through floods and all sorts of trying times. You can read more about her here.
In addition to a plethora of lilacs, there are other flowers, too...
okokokok...back to the lilacs.
I think that's it for now.
What are you doing for fun this weekend? We're hanging out and catching up with ourselves...i.e. knitting, photography, maybe a movie and a trip to the local farmers market.
I hope your weekend is fabulous!! xo
When lilacs last in the door-year bloom'd,
And the great star early droop'd in the western sky in the night,
and yet shall mourn with ever-returning spring.
~ Walt Whitman
