Hollyhock? Larkspur? Invasive evil weeds? I don't know but they are pretty - and they have a great view of Puget Sound by Shoreline.


Updates: Donna Eggen thinks that the leaves give this away as a lilac - an unusual purplish color instead of the traditional lilac. Lorelei Begalka says Jan Hansen's photo is gorgeous and agrees they are lilacs.

Bill Kesel says "It's a lilac and at one time there was a hybridizer In Innis Arden that hybridized lilacs. A lot of the lilacs were fragrant."

Deane Bell: The flowers are a beautiful example of pink Lilacs.The smell must be heavenly! Make a visit late March (may still be in bloom) to Woodland, Washington and visit the Hulda Klager Lilac Gardens – kind of like visiting LaConner for tulips. Closed this year but next year:

Jan Hansen has got to be the best newspaper photographer since Eddie Adams. We just love her work! :-)
