Most white flowers are abominations

And they so often stink like burning wires. Well, that might be an exaggeration, but then I'm said to be given to exaggeration and understatement. Probably not all that well known for exceptional truth telling, but that's another matter for another day.

Meanwhile, I actually do like white lilacs. They remind me of a better place and time, likely forever lost now.

White lilacs, and the yellow wild roses of Texas, have a similar effect on me.

The only other white flowers I enjoy are gardenias, grown outside rather than in pots indoors, and jasmine vine and white honeysuckle...all flowers from places I've lived south of the Mason-Dixon.

A white flower has it's place, usually downwind, but in the right place, it can work for me. This lilac was about right. Later in the season, that white garden will have some interesting smells in it, most of which I think are about right for a place often used for weddings.

We have gardenias, but they are guaranteed to be burnt in frost every year. They look so straggly at that point, I just don't want them around, at least until we have a little more global warming.
