Whatever they are


  1. Miriam Kates says:

    Lilac, maybe? I didn’t know you could hedge them.

  2. Doris says:

    Yes, they are Lilacs. And they do smell so gooood!

  3. Dennis Salb says:

    It’s Star Jasmine.

  4. Christine Aky from LI, NY says:

    I have the same plant in front of my house. Smells delish!

  5. Rachel Larsen says:


  6. Tai says:

    Yes lilacs do smell wonderfull and I’ve always wished they bloomed longer then they do here, only about a week or so in the spring.

  7. Brenda says:

    Those are lilacs for sure, my FAVORITE smell in the spring. I’ve never seen them trimed to a hedge like that…very interesting.

  8. Kirstyn says:

    My understanding is that Lilacs are taller and have a conical shape to the blooming areas… This looks like a variety of Jasmine… and Jasmine smells heavenly!

  9. darren says:

    i used to live in chicago and i miss the scent of these. intoxicating.

  10. Lilacs? says:

    That doesn’t look like a lilac bush…lilacs grow in big clusters and the leaves are too small. Lilac bushes have big flat leaves. I think it looks more like a star jasmine bush.

  11. Chummy says:

    This appears to be Korean Dwarf Lilac, a very fragrant, low-growing variety of lilac, Matt.

    I’m very much enjoying reading of and viewing images of your walk! Thank you for sharing from the road!
