  7. I’m partial to lilacs, and happened to go in the springtime while visiting in OR, and we crossed the river and found a wonderful Lilac Festival with over a hundred varieties that had been made by a pioneer. Her home had been made into a museum and the place was fantastic. This post brings back memories of that trip. I love lavender just as much and would love to check this out as well, partly because of the berries! Thanks for a superb post.
