Cross posted!  Very interesting that the Woodland Trust link calls it wild lilac, I asked a local who couldn't identify it, saying I thought it could be a 'wild lilac'

Nutcutlet gets the ID again!  Yes, it's a Prunus padus, here is a lovely link that describes it in detail, right down to the two little glands on the leave (that mine have)

Thank you for confirming it is a lilac, I did a little internet search and I think it could be a syringa reticulata - Japanese lilac.  

The flowers in the picture above are about 3 inches long.

Please can anyone identify this tree?  I have one in my garden that is about 30 foot tall, I also see them out walking in a local wood and they are anything up to 40 foot tall.  The flowers smell like lilac to me.

Plants for bathrooms

I have a peace lily (Spathiphyllum) in my bathroom but it is underneath the window to be in a shadier position.

Do I talk too much.?

Mike, I think I know why you ask this.  I have noticed the odd comment that could be taken the wrong way when you post.  You do have your own special way of writing your responses, I would like to suggest that if certain people find it irritating that they press ignore.

I personally enjoy your posts and hope you will continue to contribute.

Can anyone identify this sad specimen?

I agree with Dove, it is a scilla, I have lots in my garden.  They self seed very easily.

I'm with Fairygirl, I have a Molly Sanderson viola in a pot and I am waiting with anticipation as it is just about to flower.  What I like about it is that it is unusual and striking.

I really need to buy some more and plant them in front of euphorbia polychroma for maximum impact!
