There is a park in Rochester, Highland Park, that contains 120 acres and over a 1,000 varieties of lilacs. We went there one evening after we visited people we are working with in Rochester and enjoyed strolling among the lilacs. The aroma was heavenly and the flowers stunning!
We enjoyed a short drive along Lake Ontario looking at the apple trees as they were in blossom. There are miles and miles of apple orchards here in New York, home of Seneca Apple Juice.
. . . and we thought they only happened in the winter!
We had a big wind storm on Saturday. A tree blew over on the road to the top of Hill Cumorah and that part of the Hill Cumorah Visitors' Center had to be closed. Then the power went out at Hill Cumorah and the entire site was closed. The Sacred Grove was also closed due to danger of falling branches with the high winds (gusts were from 45 - 60 miles per hour).
