Interesting findings about lilacs

  1. 1. Lilacs: living with chemists? By one ordinary researcher (observer :o))
  2. 2. Lilacs <ul><li>There are lots of various types of lilacs in the world… </li></ul><ul><li>And there are lots of various types of lilacs in the garden of our chemical institution as well. Since I’m not sure if they are hand-made or natural, I don’t care what are their real names :o) I just can differ them by other attributes, which often are pretty distinct. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Stages of Lilac Life <ul><li>and then they wither silently :o( </li></ul>They bloom, they decorate parks and houses with nice colors and scents,
  4. 4. Lilacs differ by color <ul><ul><li>From white to pink, from purple to actually lilac :o) </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Blooming <ul><li>Flowers which aren’t opened yet are darker than the </li></ul><ul><li>opened ones, and with time the opened ones become of a </li></ul><ul><li>lighter color. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Various shapes <ul><ul><li>Petals can be thin, large, stick out or grown together. </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Various size <ul><li>Flowers can be in a big range of sizes, from pretty small to large ones </li></ul>
  8. 8. Various number of petals <ul><li>Usually there are 4 petals. </li></ul>
  9. 9. 5 petals <ul><li>There is a belief in certain nations, that finding (and eating :o)) </li></ul><ul><li>a 5 petal flower brings luck. </li></ul><ul><li>Well, if you want to be lucky I invite you to my institution (but don’t </li></ul><ul><li>eat them too many :o)) </li></ul>
  10. 10. 6 petals <ul><li>Well, I’m not sure if six petal flowers bring luck, but you can have it a lot at my institution too :o) </li></ul><ul><li>Bon appetite :o) </li></ul>
  11. 11. 7 petals <ul><li>It’s getting more interesting :o) and luckier? :o) </li></ul><ul><li>Well, yeah, since it’s not a white one :o) Some believe white ones are for sad events only. </li></ul>
  12. 12. 3 petals <ul><li>This was more difficult to find than the ones with more than 4 petals. </li></ul>
  13. 13. 8 petals <ul><li>Well, I am not sure if this one brings luck, but it looks </li></ul><ul><li>really nice and special :o) </li></ul>
  14. 14. More 8 petals <ul><li>I’m not sure if it’s natural to have 8 petal flowers of </li></ul><ul><li>lilac. I wonder if our lilacs are in special environment </li></ul><ul><li>created by our chemists :o) </li></ul>
  15. 15. Mutants <ul><li>To bring more facts; we have lots of various types </li></ul><ul><li>of mutants, from Siam twins to underdeveloped </li></ul><ul><li>petals :o) </li></ul>
  16. 16. Conclusion Well, I can’t say I liked lilacs much, although they are very popular in my country Armenia, but after I saw an 8 petal one, and then noticed the differences in colors and shapes, I kept looking for an “interesting species” all day long, I couldn’t stop observing them adorably :o) I was running from one tree to another, I was carefully analyzing one flower after another. Oh well, I might be charmed by their beauty, or I was just stupefied (intoxicated? :o) by their strong scent (odor? :o))
