Well, it’s taken me a while but I finally did it! I went through all the photos I took of the Ramona lilacs in bloom during my latest visit at Dos Picos County Park in Ramona, California. I ended with a few good photos I’m sharing below in a gallery format.

Ramona lilacs are different from the regular lilac trees you’re probably used to. The flowers are a lot smaller and much less fragrant, but just as beautiful. You can see on some photos that the trees are completely covered with clusters of purple flowers. The flowers actually look blue when they are unopened. As they open they get dark purple and when they’re open completely, they’re more of a light purple. This gives each tree a unique look and color. That’s why each cluster looks different on the photos.
Thank you for your patience! I hope you enjoy the show. And let me know what you think if the comments section if you’d like.
I love, love, love lilacs! Mine is close to blooming, but still teasing me right now. Your pictures are perfect.
Glad you like them! I don’t like lilacs bloom around Paris before May, so I’m not surprised yours are getting there, considering the winters you get.
Yes, I can see the blossoms ready to pop, but they’re holding on (which is good since we’re due to get a hard freeze tonight)
I love anything purple. Except for skin. Purple or bluish skin is not good…
Oh yeah, that would be a bad sign… Purple is very pretty and healthy in nature, fortunately.
What beautiful colors! I am crossing my fingers that warmer weather will bring ours out by next week. 🙂
Thanks! I’ll cross my fingers on my end if it helps your lilac bloom.
Gorgeous lilacs!! =)
Those flower clusters are so gorgeous. I can almost smell the lilacs. 🙂
Oh, I wish they smelled like real lilacs! My son swore he could smell the fragrance but I didn’t, as much as I tried.
