World's first blue roses after 20 years of research
In some cultures, blue roses traditionally signify a mystery, or attaining the impossible, or never ending quest for the impossible. They are believed to be able to grant the owner youth or grant wishes. Historically, this symbolism derives from the rose's meaning in the language of flowers common in Victorian times. Blue roses also convey inner feelings of love at first sight, being enchanted by something or someone.

Lilacs (Syringa vulgaris) had been planted in the 1920s -- they had gone wild and the bushes (now very large) bloomed heavily in the 1940s & 50s
because borrowed sounds so much better than stolen,doesn't it? There's no shortage of lilacs in and around town, some gone completely wild, to the point where no one would ever notice a missing armload, or two or three, over the course of the blossoming season. knittingiris
